Jian, Wes, Hoimin, Kaz, and Jesse have identified an unusual mechanism of enantioselective photoactivation in a JACS full paper. This study required synthetic and kinetic studies from our group, transient absorption spectroscopy in Jerry Meyer‘s …
Mary Beth and BJ’s study of asymmetric cinnamate ester photocycloadditions appears in JACS. Part of a great collaboration with the Baik group at KAIST!
We are pleased to contribute Adrian and Evan’s article on a Photocatalytic Strategy for Pyrrolidine Synthesis to the Asian JOC Special Issue on Heterocyclic Chemistry.
Elliot, Steven, and Wes have published a full paper in JACS analyzing the origins of a surprising counteranion effect in photocatalytic radical anion Diels–Alder cycloadditions. A paper six years in the making!
Tehshik is honored to be a recipient of a 2019 Cope Scholar Award — along with colleague Bob McMahon!
Nic, Maddie, and Vlad have published an Org Lett paper describing an approach to alkene oxyamination that uses unmodified nucleophilic carbamates as N-atom donors.
Grace Lutovsky and Matt Genzink are new graduate students in the group! Welcome!
Adrian and Evan’s paper in Synthesis on a General Protocol for Radical Anion [3+2] Cycloadditions is awarded the 2018 Synthesis Best Paper Award.
