Strategies and Tactics for Complex Molecule Synthesis (#174)

The laboratory synthesis of complex organic compounds remains a core
area of endeavor in the chemical sciences. This symposium aims to
highlight cutting edge advancements in the overall strategies and
tactics employed to assemble complex molecular scaffolds, including
topologically challenging natural and non-natural products. This
complements and transcends the contemporary focus on underlying
synthetic methodology. This symposium will demonstrate the utility of
various individual synthetic methods in the specific context of
strategic implementation for complex molecular assembly. Synthetic
strategy relies upon tactics, which, in turn requires the availability
specific methods. It will be shown how synthetic strategies and
tactics may validate methodological developments in the context
complex molecule synthesis.
