Lalic Lab

The main focus of our research is the development of practical transition-metal catalyzed transformations that address problems encountered in organic synthesis. Our approach to reaction development involves the synthesis of transition-metal complexes, systematic study of their reactivity, and detailed exploration of reaction mechanisms. Finally, the utility of the transformations discovered in our group is demonstrated by their application in total synthesis.

We are currently working on the following projects:

  1. Metal-catalyzed hydrofunctionalyzations of alkenes and alkynes

  2. Asymmetric synthesis of heterocycles containing quaternary stereocenters.

  3. Design of new ligands for hydroacylation of alkenes
