Chemistry Seminar, Feb. 12

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is pleased to host "The Total Syntheses of Two Chlorosulfolipids", presented by Mr. Grant Shibuya a Santa Clara University alumni and current Ph.D. candidate at U.C. Irvine.

"The Total Syntheses of Two Chlorosulfolipids"

The chlorosulfolipids are an interesting class of halogenated natural products due to their heavily chlorinated substitution pattern and their unknown biological/structural functions within their natural sources. A study of their 3-dimensional shape, a diastereoselective dichlorination methodology, and the total syntheses of two of these chlorosulfolipids is described.


Date: Friday, Feb. 12, 2010
Time: 4-5 pm
Place: Daly Science 103

Mr. Shibuya will be in Daly Science 103 from 3:13-3:50 pm to meet with students
