Research Interests

The main research interest of the Prunet group is the synthesis of biologically active natural products, such as taxol, a powerful antitumor agent, or dolabelide C and hexacyclinic acid, molecules with cytotoxic activity. In our approaches towards the target molecules, we uncover problems that cannot be easily solved by known reactions, and to overcome these difficulties we try to develop new methodologies that can also be applied to other syntheses.
