Thesis Title: Protodecarboxylations and The Flow Synthesis of Isomaleimides

Advisor: Dr. Mitchell Croatt


The palladium catalyzed protodecarboxylations of dienoic acids was redesigned for the hetero-dieneoic acid system: γ-ketoenoic acids. Through the synthesis substrates for this reaction, a method for the synthesis of isomaleimides was discovered.
