Abstract:  The Grenning research lab aims to develop enabling chemical reactions and strategies inspired by bioactive small molecules. Discussed will be our recent efforts related to the Cope rearrangement and the design and synthesis of axially-chiral cannabinol, novel scaffolds for cannabinoid-inspired drug discovery.
