Boulder Scientific Company Announces 2017 Distinguished Lecture

Mead, CO – February 20, 2017:

Boulder Scientific Company today announced that John Hartwig of the University of California at Berkeley will be the 2017 Boulder Scientific distinguished lecturer held at the Chemistry Department of Colorado State University. The Boulder Scientific Company Distinguished Lecture Series has been held every year since 2006 and has featured both academic and industrial chemists mainly working in the area of catalysis. The lecture series has featured three Nobel prize winners: Richard Shrock of MIT, Robert Grubbs of CalTech, and Dr. Negishi of Purdue University. Boulder Scientific Company is a Colorado-based manufacturer of specialty organometallic chemicals such as metallocenes, boron compounds, Grignards and other specialty organic chemicals used in the life sciences and industrial chemistry. The title of the lecture is “Selective Functionalization with Large and Small Catalysts”. The lecture will be held in room A101 of the Chemistry Building on March 21, 2017 at 4:00 p.m.

About Professor John Hartwig:
Summary: Professor Hartwig’s research group focuses on the discovery and understanding of new reactions of organic compounds catalyzed by transition metal complexes. These findings result from a combination of organic synthesis, organometallic synthesis and mechanistic analysis of catalytic systems.
Detail: The Hartwig group is currently investigating the selective catalytic functionalization of alkanes and arenes, cross-couplings to form arylamines and aryl ethers from aryl halides or sulfonates, cross-couplings that directly convert carbonyl compounds to ?-aryl carbonyl derivatives, new catalysts for the hydroaminations of alkenes, catalysts for the enantioselective and site-selective allylic substitution, and catalysts for transformations of precursors to biofuels and renewable chemical feedstocks. His group has conducted extensive mechanistic investigations of each of these types of reactions. Through these studies, they have revealed several new classes of reductive eliminations, discrete compounds that functionalize alkanes, unusual three-coordinate arylpalladium complexes that are intermediates in cross-coupling, the first compounds that oxidatively add ammonia to form monomeric products, and the first transition-metal amido and alkoxo complexes that insert unactivated alkenes. In addition to these research activities he has authored the textbook titled Organotransition Metal Chemistry: From Bonding to Catalysis published in December 2009.
