RSC Pedler Award Lecture (School Seminar) hosted by Dr Paul Davies

Abstract: The presentation will contain a selection of published and unpublished data from our recent mechanistic investigations into the activation, propagation and inhibition of catalysts (Au, Rh, Pd) and reagents (R3SiX and RBX2 ) in synthesis. Gaining an understanding of the main mechanisms of action in these nominally simple processes requires the acquisition of data under a broad range of conditions, and the interpretation of some surprising and sometimes counter-intuitive kinetic behaviour. The resulting insight can inform the design and improvement of reactions and processes. These studies have involved collection of large sets of kinetic data on reactions proceeding at time-scales ranging from months to milliseconds, and the redesign of stopped-flow methodologies to effect time-efficient and material-efficient analyses on standard instruments.
