Special Houk-Jung Organic Colloquium 247: Dr. Jose Roque

4 days ago

  • Speaker: Dr. Jose Roque
  • Jose Roque obtained his B.S. degree in chemistry in 2015 from Florida International University, working with Prof. Kevin O’Shea. In 2020, he earned his doctorate at The University of California, Berkeley, with Richmond Sarpong studying complex molecule synthesis and developing skeletal editing strategies. Roque is currently a Presidential Postdoctoral Fellow at Princeton University with Prof. Paul Chirik, working on electronically-controlled C–H activation.

  • Young Hall 2033
  • Modern drug discovery has benefited from advancements in chemical reaction development. For example, C–H functionalization reactions has transformed how synthetic chemists approach the retrosynthetic analysis of bioactive compounds. Despite recent advances, the development of site-selective reactions remains a grand challenge in metal-catalyzed C–H functionalization. Typical retrosynthetic analysis results in simplified fragments by the removal of…

  • Title: Cationic indium in catalysis: Generation of functionalized copolymers from commodity monomers Abstract: Cationic indium complexes are rare in the field of catalysis. We have developed families of cationic indium complexes supported by tridentate and tetradentate aminophenolate ligands which show reactivity towards cyclic esters, cyclic ethers, and copolymerizations with CO 2. We show that, depending…

  • Dr. Jovanovic Flyer Title: "Delocalized Bonding in Extended Systems: From Molecules to Quantum Materials" Abstract: A long list of words attached to extensions of two-center two-electron bonding, such as conjugation, aromaticity, electron-deficient, and electron-rich bonding, testifies to the ubiquity of electron delocalization and its importance in chemistry. Delocalization certainly has consequences – in spectroscopic, ionization,…
