Stereoselective CO2 Capture through Sustainable Organocatalytic Alkene Activation

Project description

Alkenes and CO2 for eco-friendly organocatalytic reactions

Alkenes and CO2 can be used to develop asymmetric organocatalytic reactions for environmentally-friendly manufacturing of medicinally-important building blocks which are abundant in drug molecules and agrochemicals. This will be the aim of the EU-funded SusCat project, following an interdisciplinary approach that combines theory, experiment and cheminformatics. The project will perform advanced computational analysis and physical organic experiments to increase understanding of the molecular level. SusCat will connect organic synthesis, computational modelling and physical organic studies, providing a unique alternative to environmentally harming metal mediated synthesis and contributing to Europe 2020 strategy priorities for sustainable growth and resource efficiency.
