Explorations in polyene chemistry

Drew, Samuel


Conjugated polyenes are an important class of organic molecules that have found applications in chemistry, medicine, and materials science. The ability of π-bond rich polyenes to rapidly generate structural complexity through domino pericyclic reactions renders them powerful reagents for synthesis. This thesis, which is submitted in publication format, describes the application of through-conjugated and cross-conjugated polyenes in step-economic natural product synthesis. The first synthesis of...[Show more]
