Utilizing high-throughput experimentation to catalyze diverse chemistry and collaborations within and outside of Merck

Current examples will be discussed that highlight how approaching catalysis through high-throughput experimentation (HTE) has addressed several synthetic challenges that have occurred during pharmaceutical development at Merck. Emphasis will be given towards recently published methodologies that focus on the direct functionalization of sp3 C-H bonds via decatungstate photocatalysis and Ni-catalyzed C-H arylation. These methodologies were the result of strong academic-industrial collaborations that were ultimately enabled with HTE.
