We have a new paper out in J. Org. Chem.! In this work, Suma, Molly, and Gopi describe the behavior of a short o-phenylene with crown ethers appended to its ends. Suitable diammonium guests cause the oligomer to misfold.
Welcome to Dr. Nirob Saha, who has joined the group as a postdoctoral researcher! Nirob comes to us from Auburn University where he worked in the Merner group.
Welcome to Yinhui Liao, who has joined the group as a graduate student! Yinhui comes to us from Peking University.
Welcome to Corvo Tran and Jake Franklin, who have joined the group as undergraduate researchers!
We have a new paper out in J. Org. Chem.! Isuru, Maddy, and Georgia examine structure–property effects on the carbodiimide-induced clamping of diphenic acids, important results as we look to incorporate these into more-complex systems.
Happy trails to Mohammad (Mosharraf) Hossain, who has completed his time with us as a postdoc. Mosharraf is moving on to the Wenthur group at the University of Wisconsin.
Welcome to Grace Olive, who has joined the group for the summer as an NSF REU student. Grace comes to us from Earlham College.
Congratulations to undergraduates Will Carson, who was awarded an NSF GRF, and Georgia Mantel, who was named a Beckman Scholar!
