Making Functional Groups from C–H Bonds

The evolution of selective methods for C-H bond functionalization has shaped the modern practice of synthetic chemistry. For more than two decades, our lab has invested in the development of C-H oxidation reaction technologies that enable facile production of amines and amine derivatives from readily available starting materials. This lecture will present a brief historic overview of our research in this area and detail recent efforts to advance a state-of-the-art method for single-step C-H amination of complex molecules.

Professor Justin DuBois

Justin Du Bois was born August 23, 1969 in Los Angeles, California. He received his B.S. degree from the University of California, Berkeley in 1992, where he conducted undergraduate research with Professor Ken Raymond. In 1997 he earned his Ph. D. from the California Institute of Technology under the direction of Professor Erick Carreira. Following a two year NIH postdoctoral position with Professor Stephen Lippard at MIT, he joined the faculty at Stanford University as an assistant professor. In 2005, he was promoted to the associate level. In addition, Justin is faculty by courtesy in the Dept. of Chemical & Systems Biology at Stanford University, a founding member of the NSF Center for Selective C-H Functionalization, an executive committee member of the Stanford Institute for Chemical Biology, and the founder of the Center for Molecular Analysis and Design at Stanford University.
