About the Seminar: Nitroarenes are an important class of molecules found in pharmaceuticals and used as synthetic intermediates in the synthesis of more complex molecules. Because nitroarenes are very pi-deficient, they are challenging to halogenate via electrophilic aromatic substitution (EAS). Currently, these molecules can be halogenated at the meta position using solvent quantities of strong […]

About the Seminar: Arguably the most facile synthetic approach towards sustainable polyesters is through the ring-opening polymerization (ROP) of cyclic esters (or lactones). Robust methodology has been developed for the controlled ROP of these cyclic monomers at scale, but synthesis of these lactone monomers from bio-derived feedstocks can often be multi-step, energy intensive, low yielding, […]

About the Seminar: This work will explore photoredox-Ni dual catalyzed sp2-sp3 cross-coupling, Diels-Alder, and hetero Diels-Alder reactions towards their use in synthesizing synthetic cannabinoids. These transformations are critical for medicinal chemistry applications to enable reactions between electron-rich dienes and electron-rich dienophiles and difficult sp3-sp2 cross-coupling reactions.  Additionally, these reactions can be used to synthesize JWH133 […]

About the Seminar: In the modern world, polymeric materials dominate both commercial and consumer materials. From car tires to drug delivery capsules, the applications of polymers are nearly limitless. As such, there has been significant interest in understanding the structure-property relationships for both theoretical and real polymers. In particular, the effect of chain ends on […]

Visiting Scientist Seminar About the Seminar: The synthesis of inorganic materials, particularly via solid-state routes, often results in unexpected and/or unwanted product phases. While these phases are typically referred to as “kinetic” products, their formation can often be rationalized through careful application of thermodynamics at solid interfaces within an “open” framework, where chemical potentials of […]

About the Seminar: Imaging techniques are a vital part of clinical diagnostics and biomedical research. Optical molecular imaging makes use of relatively harmless, low-energy light, and technically straightforward instrumentation. Bioluminescence imaging systems, particularly use of firefly luciferin, are attractive because they have inherently high signal contrast due to the lack of background emission. However, current […]
