Fall Scientific Meeting
2021 Virtual FALL SCIENTIFIC MEETING
Saturday, October 23rd, 2021
Midland ACS cordially invite you to participate in this year’s Virtual Fall Scientific Meeting and explore our theme of “Fast or Slow… Chemistry Makes it Go!” Details of the virtual format will be updated on https://sites.google.com/view/acs-2021-fsm/home

Professor Babak Borhan’s synthetic chemistry program generally focuses on the development of new reactions that utilize simple organic molecules and through designed manipulations leads to more complex systems. In most cases, his methodologies lead to the production of heterocycles with regio- and stereocontrol. These transformations are then highlighted in total syntheses of natural products exhibiting interesting biological activities. Recently, his team have reported the catalytic asymmetric chlorolactonization of alkenoic acids and unsaturated amides to furnish chiral heterocycles. These reactions are catalyzed by (DHQD)2PHAL in combination with various N-chlorinated hydantoins as the terminal chlorenium sources. Halofunctionalization of different compounds, understanding the mechanism of these transformations and the details of enantioselections are currently under investigation. In his talk, Professor Borhan will present mechanistic investigations, highlighting the use of physical organic principles to challenge an accepted mechanism in halofunctionalization chemistry.
