Abstract: Nature provides feedstock chemicals in an array of oxidation states, from reduced hydrocarbons to complex, stereochemically-rich carbohydrates. The efficient utilization of such materials as organic building blocks relies on the availability of selective methods for their conversion. Our group is addressing this challenge through the development of new catalysts for C-H activation and hydrosilylation.
