The Suero research group has developed new catalytic methods involving conceptually-novel radical carbenoids, carbyne equivalents, and metal-carbynoids and studied their behavior towards fine & feedstock chemicals as well as medically relevant agents. Key on this work has been to design and synthesize tailored reagents that upon photoredox, light or metal activation delivered the novel reactive species. Those reagents have found unique applications in the late-stage functionalization of drug molecules and natural products, that permitted the construction of chiral centers using C–H bonds as functional groups and in cyclopropanations of styrenes.

Carbon has the unique ability to bind four atoms and form stable tetravalent structures that are prevalent in nature. The lack of one or two valences leads to a set of species-carbocations, carbanions, radicals and carbenes-that is fundamental to our understanding...Read More
