"Atom-Economical Catalysis in Single Electron Steps Merging Radical Chemistry and Catalysis"

Presented by
Andreas Gansäuer
Kekulé-Institut für Organische Chemie und Biochmie, Universität Bonn, Gerhard-Domagk-Str 1. , D-53121 Bonn
E-mail: andreas.gansaeuer@uni-bonn.de

Room 209 Havemeyer

Radicals are excellent reactive intermediates for the generation of C-C, C-H, and C-Het bonds. This is due to the mild conditions available for radical generation and trapping, the high functional group tolerance of radical reactions, and the ability of radicals to add to C-C multiple bonds in a highly predictable manner. Moreover, solvation effects are often less relevant than in reactions with ionic intermediates.

Most often radical reactions are carried out as chain processes and many outstanding applications of this concept have emerged of the last decades. In catalysis and especially in atom-economical catalysis the potential of radicals as key-intermediates remains largely untapped. Here, approaches to such catalytic reactions are described that rely on two key aspects. First, the unique ability of the Cp2Ti(III)Cl/Cp2Ti(IV)Cl2 couple to shuttle between the two oxidation levels in single electron steps is exploited for the design of catalyst reactivity. Second, key-reactions for performing oxidative additions and reductive eliminations in single electron steps by employing radicals are developed. These key-steps are combined with typical ‘classic’ radical reactions, such as 5- and 6-exo cyclizations, addition reactions to arenes, and radical reduction through H-atom-abstraction from M-H bonds to yield novel atom-economical catalytic cycles.

When: Thursday, August 28th, 6:30 - 9:00 PM Where: Onyx, Hotel Intercontinental, Marine Drive RSVP: lsealumnibombay@gmail.com The award winning documentary 'Fire in the Blood' directed by Dylan Mohan Gray tells the story of how Western pharmaceutical companies and governments blocked access to the low-cost AIDS drugs, causing million of deaths. Dr. Yusuf Hamied is a leading Indian scientist and Chairman of Cipla. He electrified the global health community a decade ago when he said he could produce cocktails of AIDS medicines for $1 per day — a fraction of the price charged by branded pharmaceutical companies giving access to treatment for more than six million people in the developing world. He was awarded the Padma Bhusan award by the Government of India in 2005. He holds a PhD in Chemistry from Cambridge University. We look forward to seeing you there!

Ethiopia: Football Federation with Joachim Fickert and Ato Mekonen

Date:August 29, 2014 from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm EDT
Location:Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Info:Click Here to Visit Website.

Join Columbia alumni in Ethiopia as we tie our imaginative soccer shoes and look into Ethiopia's path of resuscitating old days of football glory. Last year, the German football federation sent Joachim Fickert to Ethiopia to help develop Ethiopia's youth and football at the grassroots. Mr. Fickert has more than 30 years of experience as a technical advisor in Africa and Asia and was, among other things, the national coach of Mali until the last conflict. We will meet him and his Ethiopian counterpart, Ato Mekonen, at the Ethiopian Football Federation on Friday afternoon in one week, August 29, at Stadium in Addis Ababa and hear about their work and projects. The exact time is yet to be announced, but it'll be most likely 4 p.m. and I hope you can all make it. Afterwards, we'll have dinner in close vicinity. Germany's current success dates back to 1998 when they shamefully lost 3:0 to Croatia in the quarter finals at the Football World Cup in France. The German football federation rethought its concept and rebuilt the country's entire football landscape at the grassroots level. Most of today's champions like Bastian Schweinsteiger or Mario Götze are products of those efforts. This concept is now to be reapplied in Ethiopia with German support. As we all remember, Ethiopia won the Africa Cup of Nations in 1962 and almost made it to this year's World Cup that happened to be a German affair. But Ethiopia is getting there ...

Portfolio Choice in Uncertain Market Environments

Investing in a risky asset to maximize expected utility is necessarily influenced by the nature of its uncertain volatility and uncertain growth rate (collectively, its stochastic Sharpe ratio). The classical Merton solution is the benchmark, in the case where volatility and growth rate are constant, and utility is of some specific forms. We discuss an approach to analyzing the investment problem when these constraints are not imposed, using multiscale perturbation analysis. This leads naturally to the concept of implied Sharpe ratio, analogous in many respects to implied volatility in options pricing. If there is time, we also look at the effect of transaction costs.

Origins of Environmental Law Lecture Series: Introduction to Early Environmental Legislation, Pre-1969

Event Description:
Speakers: Leon G. Billings and Thomas C. Jorling

The Earth Institute presents Origins of Environmental Law Lecture Series Description: Introduction to Early Environmental Legislation, Pre-1969.  

This seminar is part of a semester-long lecture series entitled The Origins of Environmental Law: Regulation and Evolution. Leon G. Billings and Thomas C. Jorling are the two senior staff members who led the Senate environment subcommittee which originated and developed major environmental legislation in the 1970s, including the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, and the Superfund Act. Over the course of a single decade, Congress enacted a series of environmental laws that defined the direction and character of environmental policy in the US and globally. Learn about the process that led to these seminal laws from the writers of the legislation themselves.

This first talk will provide an overview of environmental legislation and early environmental federalism. The speakers will review the evolution of existing pollution law, circa 1969: water pollution legislation from 1948 through 1966 and air pollution legislation from 1955 through 1967. They will also consider what things can limit federal intervention, and will look at the role of external factors such as Earth Day and the Vietnam War protests on environmental legislation. 

RSVP is required for this event. Please note this lecture is part of a regularly scheduled course. Guests will join registered students in the class for the lecture and discussion.

Becoming Soviet: The Transformation of Everyday Life in Stalin's Times

Mass festivals were a trademark of twentieth-century authoritarianism, as seen in fascist Italy, Nazi Germany, and elsewhere. But nowhere was this phenomenon more prevalent than in the Soviet Union. Despite being a dominant feature of Soviet culture, these public spectacles have been largely overlooked as objects of study by historians. Originally published in German, Malte Rolf’s highly acclaimed work examines the creation and perpetuation of large-scale celebrations such as May Day, the anniversary of the October Revolution, Harvest Day, and others throughout the Soviet era. He chronicles the overt political agendas, public displays of power, forced participation, and widespread use of these events in the Soviet drive to eradicate existing cultural norms and replace them with new icons of Soviet ideology. Rolf shows how the new Red Calendar became an essential tool in redefining celebrations in the Soviet Union. Malte Rolf is professor of history at the University of Bamberg, Germany. His book, Soviet Mass Festivals, 1917-1991 (University of Pittsburgh Press 2014), has received the Klaus Mehnert Award by the German Society for East European Studies and the Doctorate Award of University of Tübingen.
