Professor Boeckman's research efforts focus on the development of new synthetic methodology, applicable solution of complex stereochemical problems, including asymmetric synthesis. His research employs organometallic chemistry and conformational theory to assist creation of stereocontrolled synthetic transformations and utilizes complex multifunctional molecules as target structures for applications of his methodological studies.
