The desire to synthesise molecules in new and improved ways is
arguably what motivates research across all of organic chemistry.
This thesis will describe efforts in two areas that are
consistent with this broad objective, concerning the synthesis of
natural products, and the development of methods for the
synthesis of designed molecules. Our desire to better utilise the
Diels-Alder reaction – a powerful means for the formation of
carbon-carbon bonds, sits as...[Show more]
