Master projects - Gold Catalysis in Organic Synthesis
Master projects on gold catalysis will contribute to this project. The candidate will, in general:
carry out investigations to evaluate the ability of actual substrates to undergo gold(I) catalysed reactions in order to develop novel gold(I) catalysed transformations.
The project will/may also include:
- mechanistic studies
- preparation of appropriate substrates
- isolation and purification of products and intermediates (e.g. flash chromatography)
- characterization and structure elucidation of new compounds, in particular by 1H, 13C NMR and 2D NMR
- preparation of bioactive target compounds by gold(I) catalysis
Specific master projects connected to current research topics in the group, will be defined by contact with prof. Anne Fiksdahl.
