abstract
Two of the major focuses in current synthetic organic chemistry are asymmetric carbon-carbon bond forming processes and catalytic one-pot reactions. Two processes that are of interest to our research are the Diels-Alder reaction and transition-metal-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions. Issues that arise in these processes include poor efficiency and poor stereoselectivity. My dissertation research has centered around the synthesis and use of 2-silicon-substituted 1,3-dienes to alleviate these problems. These dienes, whether utilized as reagents or intermediates, serve as synthons for less reactive/selective 2-aryl 1,3-dienes.
