Design of Chiral Aryl Iodide Catalysts

These researchers are attempting to design, synthesize and evaluate novel chiral aryl iodide catalysts for stereoselective oxidative dearomatization reactions. As part of this work they are also trying to gain further insight into the mechanism of oxidative dearomatization by hypervalent iodine reagents. MSI resources are used to evaluate mechanistic pathways and transition states.
