John F. Hartwig is the Henry Rapoport Professor of Chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley. His laboratory focuses on developing new methods for the preparation of a broad range of organic compounds. His explorations have illustrated the potential of the transition metal-catalyzed construction of important carbon-carbon and carbon-heteroatom linkages in a way that has elevated such transformations to strategy level reactions.
Hartwig is known for helping develop the Buchwald–Hartwig amination, a chemical reaction used in organic chemistry for the synthesis of carbon–nitrogen bonds via the palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling of amines with aryl halides. Here is an example of this reaction:
He also helped develop a technique for steric-directed C–H borylation of arenes. The versatility of this method is described in the following reaction scheme:
Hartwig received his A.B. from Princeton University in 1986, and earned his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of California, Berkeley in 1990.
