Lecture 34 - Sharpless Oxidation Catalysts and the Conformation of Cycloalkanes

Guest Lecture on Stereospecific Catalysis by Barry Sharpless; Molecular Mechanics of cyclobutane and cyclopentane puckering

Professor Barry Sharpless of Scripps describes the Nobel-prizewinning development of titanium-based catalysts for stereoselective oxidation, the mechanism of their reactions, and their use in preparing esomeprazole. Conformational energy of cyclic alkanes illustrates the use of molecular mechanics.
