Invited Lecture

Prof. Ei-ichi Nakamura (The University of Tokyo, Japan)

Iron Catalysis in Organic Synthesis
Prof. Ei-ichi Nakamura

Prof. Nakamura's career has ranged over the entire field of chemistry and his research interests include the development of reactions using organo-metals, mechanistic studies of a series of organic reactions on the basis of theoretical studies and the chemistry of carbon cluster compounds such as fullerenes and carbon nanotubes. He has also recently been investigating reactions using iron catalysts which are abundant and environmentally benign.

In the lecture, a series of iron-catalyzed C-C bond formation reactions which include 1) (asymmetric) carbo-metalation of olefins, 2) cross-coupling of alkyl halides, and activation of sp2- and sp3 C-H bonds was given.
