Novel Approaches in Organic Synthesis

Tuesday, October 10, 2023 3.00 PM CEST



Discover Greener Modalities in Catalysis complementing classical transition metal-based approaches like cross-couplings, C-H functionalization, and metathesis.

We are excited to invite you to our scientific webinar on Innovation in Organic Synthesis, focusing on cutting-edge catalysis modalities that are sustainable and environmentally friendly.

Our EMEA Technology Manager for Chemistry Innovation, Angelo Lanzilotto, PhD, will lead an informative session on novel approaches to organic synthesis, including greener modalities like electricity- and light-driven reactions (electrosynthesis and photoredox catalysis). Additionally, you will learn about micellar catalysis, which allows reactions to be performed in water and replaces traditional organic solvents, complementing classical transition metal-based catalysis such as cross-couplings, C-H functionalization, and metathesis.

Key Learnings:

  • Gain an understanding of modern catalysis modalities
  • Learn about sustainable approaches to organic synthesis, including electrosynthesis and photoredox catalysis
  • Understand the benefits of micellar catalysis in replacing traditional organic solvents for reactions
