Meet our Invited Speakers:

PIERRE H. DIXNEUF is a professor at the Université de Rennes. His research interest are C-H bond activation and functionalisation, alkene metathesis and renewables, plant oils transformations, catalysis for selective processes and fine chemistry and carbon-rich organometallics. He has more than 450 publications. June 3, 2016,,Prof. Pierrre H. Dixneuf will give a talk titled: Ruthenium Catalysts toward green and sustainable chemistry : Activation of alkynes, alkenes and C-H bonds in water.

FUMITOSHI KAKIUCHI is a professor of chemistry at University of Keio, Japan since 2005. He received the Mukaiyama Award in 2011, the Young Scientist Award, Japan in 2005 and the Incentive Award in Synthetic Organic Chemistry, Japan in 2002. His research interest is the development of new methods of catalytic functionalization of unreactive carbon bonds June 3, 2016, Professor Fumitoshi Kakiuchi will give a talk titled: Development of Quinolinolato-rhodium-catalyzed Coupling Reactions Using Terminal Alkynes.

C. OLIVER KAPPE is a professor of chemistry at University of Graz since 1996. His research interests are microwave-assisted organic synthesis and continuous flow chemistry /microreactor technology. He also has projects on synthesis and manufacturing of active pharmaceutical ingredients. He has won numerous prizes including the Houska 2010 prize and he has more than 350 publications. June 3, 2016, Professor C. Oliver Kappe will give a talk titled: From Microwave to Flow - Process Intensification Utilizing High-Temperature/Pressure Chemistry.

CATHLEEN CRUDDEN is a professor of chemistry at Queen’s University, Kingston, since 2002. She received the Killam Research Fellowship in 2015, the Clara Benson Award for the top female chemist in Canada, the Premier’s Research Excellence Award, and the Chancellor’s Award among others. Her research focuses on catalysis, chirality and materials chemistry, particularly, developing new reactions to prepare compounds of interest to the pharmaceutical industry, specifically reactions that are enantioselective or enantiospecific. June 3, 2016, Professor Cathleen Crudden will give a talk titled: Organometallic chemistry for the preparation of biologically important molecules and for the design of novel self-assembled monolayers on gold.

SYLVAIN CANESSI is an associate professor of organic chemistry at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) since fall 2006. He received his Ph.D. at University of Lyon (France) in 2004 with Prof. Marco Ciufolini and was a postdoctoral fellow with Prof. Pierre Deslongchamps at the Université de Sherbrooke. His research interests are the development of new methodologies and their direct applications to the total synthesis of natural products. June 3, 2016, Professor Sylvain Canesi will give a talk titled: Could we develop greener total syntheses of alkaloids? A “small” step using hypervalent iodine reagents and a “functional” protecting group.

PAT FORGIONE is an associate professor at the Concordia University. June 3, 2016, Professor Pat Forgione will give a talk titled: Applications of decarboxyaltive and desulfinative cross-coupling reactions.
