Research topic:
Stereoselective synthesis of bifunctional terpene derivatives and their application in enantioselective transformations

Supervisor:
Dr. Zsolt Szakonyi, Prof. Dr. Ferenc Fülöp

Description:
The aim of the research work is the synthesis of beta-amino acid derivatives as potential bifunctional building blocks, starting from commercially available terpenes. The application of these building blocks in enantioselective syntheses as chiral catalysts and preparation of biologically active 1,3-heterocycles is also the goal of the research work.

 

Research topic:
Stereoselective synthesis and transformations of tridentate terpene derivatives

Supervisor:
Dr. Zsolt Szakonyi, Prof. Dr. Ferenc Fülöp

Description:
The aim of the research work is the synthesis of aminodiol and diaminoalcohol type tridentate alicyclic and bicyclic building blocks starting from commercially available terpenes. The application of these building blocks in enantioselective syntheses and preparation of 1,3-heterocycles is also the goal of the research work.
