Professor Abigail Doyle Professor Guangbin Dong

The Dong group at the University of Chicago has been interested in developing new efficient synthetic methods for site-selective functionalization of complex molecules or allowing for streamlined synthesis of common synthetic building blocks.  These include transition metal-catalyzed C-C and C-H bond activation of carbonyl compounds, arenes, alcohols and amines.

To show the synthetic utility of palladium/norbornene (Pd/NBE) cooperative catalysis, here we report concise syntheses of indenone-based natural products, pauciflorol F and acredinone A, which are enabled by direct annulation between aryl iodides and unsaturated carboxylic acid anhydrides....Read More
