The Somfai group

The focus of our research efforts is efficiency in organic synthesis and various aspects of this can be readily identified. For example, the yield of a given reaction, its environmental friendliness and cost efficiency, if it can be converted into a catalytic process or, alternatively, into an asymmetric one are all important issues that have to be considered when choosing a suitable reaction for affecting a desired transformation. We are mainly interested in developing new methodology in organic synthesis with the intention of applying the chemistry for the total synthesis of natural products.
