Synthetic Studies on Heterocyclic Natural Products, Prof. Marco Ciufolini

This presentation highlights recent efforts centering on the total synthesis of biologically relevant nitrogenous natural products. Each target molecule poses chemical problems that serve as ideal vehicles for the development and application of new preparative reactions. Compounds of current interest include thiopeptide antibiotics, e.g. micrococcins P1 and P2, Erythrina alkaloids such as erisotramidine, and polycyclic nitrogenous compounds like tetrodotoxin and himandrine. The methodology component of each project and the biomedical spinoffs that have emanated from these fundamental studies will be discussed in detail.
