Direct and Remote Ring Construction via Palladium(0)-Catalyzed C(sp3)–H Activation
Olivier Baudoin, Professor, Dr. of Chemistry, Department of Chemistry, University of Basel,

Research efforts from our group in the past couple of decades have been dedicated to the functionalization of non-activated C(sp3)–H and C(sp2)-H bonds using catalysis by palladium(0) complexes. This lecture will present some of the most recent aspects of this chemistry, including enantioselective reactions, remote bond formation using the 1,4-Pd shift strategy, and applications in natural product synthesis.
