תחומי מחקר

 

Research area - Reaction Mechanisms and Synthesis.

Major topics:

  • [2,3]-Sigmatropic rearrangements of various allylic and propargylic sulfur esters. . Discovery and study of the well-known [2,3]-sigmatropic rearrangement of allylic sulfenates to sulfoxides (the Mislow-Braverman-Evans Rearrangement), propargylic sulfenates to allenic sulfoxides, and of allylic and propargylic sulfinates to the corresponding sulfones. 
  • Diradical cyclization and cycloaromatization of bridged diallenic systems (Garratt-Braverman Cyclization).
  • Electrophilic cyclization of monoallenic systems.
  • Tandem pericyclic reactions.
  • Enediyne models.
  • Heterocumulenes, especially sulfines.
  • Addition of  chalcogen halides to propargylic alcohols.
  •  Regio- and enantioselective bromination and development of new processes of industrial interest.
