B.Sc Edgar Yovanny Quevedo Acosta

Yovanny was born in Facatativá (Cundinamarca) in 1990, and obtained his bachelor degree in chemistry at Universidad Distrital Francisco José de Caldas at Bogotá in 2013. Then he obtained a research fellowship at Universidad Nacional de Colombia where he worked in organic synthesis with Dr. Rodolfo Quevedo, studying the reactivity of β-arylethylamines with non-enolizable aldehydes and the role of hydroxyl groups on the aromatic ring in the reactivity of phenethylamines with benzofused ketones. In July 2016, he started his PhD at Universidad de los Andes working under the supervision of Dr. Diego Gamba and Dr. Igor Dias-Jurberg working in Pummerer-type reactions and C-H activation strategies in order to obtain indolizidinic sistems.

About Us

Our aim is to develop new organic transformations and applying them in the total synthesis of natural products. The choice of the target molecules is made based on its biological activity; the synthesis of the natural occurring molecules is complemented with the synthesis of structural analogues oriented to improve their biological properties.
