Abstract: Dynamic systems based on reversible reactions can be applied to selective synthesis and catalysis. These complex systems can undergo self-sorting, or be resolved, to provide optimal constituents in response to external or internal pressures. In this lecture, examples of such self-sorting and resolution processes will be given, with special emphasis on kinetic approaches. Examples include selection and self-sorting of catalyst systems, and systemic resolution using transition-metal- and biocatalysis for different asymmetric transformation processes.
Prof Olof Ramström received his MSc from Lund Institute of Technology and PhD from Lund University. After a research period in Strasbourg, France, he joined KTH Royal Institute of Technology in 2002 and is currently the Professor of Chemistry.
Prof Ramström's research activities are of multidisciplinary nature and focused at the interfaces between chemistry, materials science, and biology. The central theme is molecular recognition in general, and the study of complex receptor-ligand interactions and chemical networks in particular, where interaction partners are tailor-made for optimal performance. His current research activities involve the development of new concepts, methods and applications with focus on: 1) Dynamic and supramolecular chemistry; 2) Selective organic synthesis; and 3) Chemical nanotechnology for biomedical applications. Prof Ramström was elected a member of the Nobel Committee for Chemistry and the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.
