Alex Radosevich Presents:

"Structural Deformation in the Design of New Organophosphorus Catalysts"

Monday June 1st, 2015 at 4:00 PM in Chemistry A101

My research group is invested in the discovery of phosphorus-based catalysts that make and break bonds via two-electron changes in formal oxidation state. By enforcing nontrigonal geometries on tricoordinate P(III) compounds, we attempt to create structural and electronic conditions that facilitate catalytic cycling in the P(III)⇌P(V) redox couple. This approach has resulted in the development […]

Monday August 3rd, 2015 at 4:00 PM in Chemistry A101


Hiro Suga Presents:

"A RaPID way to discover pseudo-natural products and peptides"

Monday September 21st, 2015 at 4:00 PM in Chemistry A101

The genetic code is the law of translation, where genetic information encoded in RNA is translated to amino acid sequence. The code consists of tri-nucleotides, so-called codons, assigning to particular amino acids. In cells or in ordinary cell-free translation systems originating from prokaryotes, the usage of amino acids is generally restricted to 20 proteinogenic (standard) […]

Jennifer Prescher Presents:

"Expanding the imaging toolbox"

Monday September 28th, 2015 at 4:00 PM in Chemistry A101

Lazlo Kurti

Lazlo Kurti Presents:

"Novel Direct Arylation and Amination Reactions: Rapid Synthesis of Functionalized Biaryls, α-Arylated Ketones, Arylamines and Heterocycles"

Monday October 5th, 2015 at 4:00 PM in Chemistry A101

The growth of knowledge in the chemical sciences has seen a dramatic increase since the beginning of the 21st century. The advance is particularly significant in synthetic chemistry because of its centrality and value to society. Key to all of this is the constant development of novel C-C and C-heteroatom bond-forming strategies, methods and reagents […]
