“Construction and Deconstruction of Three-Dimensional Molecules”


Hörsaal 3 der Fakultät für Chemie
Währinger Straße 38, 1090 Wien


Natural products constitute a vast and largely unexplored library of complex molecular architectures, and are a fundamental source for novel bioactive agents. However, the complex architecture of these molecules often prevent their application in medicinal chemistry. For us, this is an inspiration to think about bioinspired retrosyn-thetic bond disconnections which enable rapid access to the target compounds. We want to discover, design and develop powerful transformations and apply them to the synthesis of biologically relevant complex natural products and simplified analogs thereof. The goal of these projects is to shed light on proposed biosynthetic processes, to identify new molecular targets and ultimately provide new lead compounds for the treatment of human diseases.
