Simple organic molecules are the basic building blocks of an extremely large portion of what is found in nature and in human beings. These three-dimensional architectural masterpieces play a key role not only in the living systems but also in pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals. Our research program aims towards developing new ways to generate these precious entities more efficiently and with specific and more varied three-dimensional architectures. Many recent efforts have targeted the development of new environmentally friendly methods that improve the efficiency in which we can make small building blocks and bioactive or biorelevant entities. Thus, the specific aim of our research program is geared towards the development of new methods for the synthesis of organic molecules through careful control of their three-dimensional architectures and using the most environmentally friendly reagents and methods. When applicable, we are using state-of-the-art techniques such as the continuous flow synthesis to enable access to large quantities of materials and safe use of reagents that normally couldn’t be used under batch conditions.
Key Words : catalysis, continuous flow synthesis, stereoselective organic synthesis, bioactive molecules
