Eli Lilley Lecture

This seminar will discuss my group’s development of new transition metal catalyzed reactions for the selective functionalization of carbon–hydrogen bonds. The talk will specifically focus on detailed mechanistic investigations and studies of model high oxidation state Pd complexes as a key driver for the development of new catalysts and new reactions in this area. This will be illustrated in the context of several important transformations, including: Pd-catalyzed ligand directed C–H arylation reactions and the Pd and Pt-catalyzed direct functionalization of arenes/alkanes. In each case, mechanistic studies/model complexes have provided critical insights for the development of novel catalysts with enhanced activity and/or selectivity for the key transformation.
