Talk title: Discovery and optimisation of enantioselective catalysts through chemoinformatics
Scott E. Denmark received his S.B. degree from MIT in 1975 and his D.Sc.Tech. degree (with Prof. Albert Eschenmoser) from the ETH Zürich in 1980.
That same year he began his career at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and since 1991 has been the Reynold C. Fuson Professor of Chemistry. His research interests include the synthetic, mechanistic and stereochemical aspects of preparatively useful reactions, and the application of AI/machine learning to the optimization of catalysts and reactions.
