Catalytic Arene Functionalization For Applications In Industrial Waste Reduction And Pollution Sequestration

Project Details

Description

Substituted aromatic molecules are important building blocks especially common in medicine, plastics and new functional materials. Important as these compounds are, the methods employed for their construction are still indirect and often involve multiple purification steps, which can lead to the generation of large quantities of chemical waste. This research aims to streamline the synthesis of substituted aromatics through the development of catalytic direct functionalization processes.
