The first section describes the development of an asymmetric one-pot synthesis of 1-alkylindan-1-ols involving an enantioselective allylboration of 2’-bromoaryl alkyl ketones followed by an intramolecular Mizoroki-Heck cyclisation. The synthetic utility of the chiral 1-alkylindan-1-ol scaffold was demonstrated using the ozonolysis product indanone in diastereoselective reductive reactions.

The second section describes the development of a rapid, one-pot tandem diazotisation and Heck-Matsuda reaction for the synthesis of methyl (E)-cinnamates via stable aryl diazonium tosylate salts. This process was then altered to allow the one-pot multistep synthesis of 3,4-dihydroquinolin-2-ones. This methodology was used for the total synthesis of a sodium channel modulator.

The third section describes a one-pot diazotisation-intramolecular cyclisation process for the synthesis of 1H-benzotriazoles and the regioselective preparation of N1-substituted benzotriazoles, including a series of biologically active compounds.
