Total Synthesis Program

The object of the total synthesis is to reach the target molecule by a series of reactions. Therefore, a successful total synthesis will heavily depend on

(1) The properly selected target molecules;
(2) The nicely designed synthetic strategy;
(3) The effectively applied synthetic tactics.

Our group currently involved total synthesis of a couple of interesting and challenging natural products as the synthetic targets to ample opportunity for the students to discover and create their own beauty of chemistry. The following natural products are illustrated as the examples of our synthetic targets currently undertook in the laboratory.
