Description

Multi-step One-pot Transformations Starting from Terminal Alkynes

Abstract. Accessibility of starting materials is one of the most important criteria for synthetically useful organic reactions. Terminal alkynes are among most easily accessible starting materials, even from commercial sources. Professor Murakami’s talk will describe some new synthetic transformations starting from terminal alkynes in which transition metal catalysts play a key role. Organic synthesis with a focus on four-membered ring compounds may be also mentioned depending on the time allocated.
