"Lec 34 - Sharpless Oxidation Catalysts and the Conformation of Cycloalkanes" Freshman Organic Chemistry (CHEM 125) Professor Barry Sharpless of Scripps describes the Nobel prize-winning development of titanium-based catalysts for stereoselective oxidation, the mechanism of their reactions, and their use in preparing esomeprazole. Conformational energy of cyclic alkanes illustrates the use of molecular mechanics. 00:00 - Chapter 1. Introduction for Professor Barry Sharpless 02:52 - Chapter 2.
