Dr Matt Kitching from the University of Durham

Molecular rearrangement strategies allow the rapid construction of complex molecular architectures in an atom efficient manner. In this talk, our recent work will show how through in-situ directing group generation, the dual nature of lithium bases can be exploited to promote a new one-pot rearrangement. In the second part, the use of molecular rearrangement in supramolecular chemistry to construct beta peptides in a sequence specific manner using a molecular machine will be discussed.

All Department members welcome.
