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.
We have a new paper out in Chem. Sci.! Viraj shows that by modulating the strength of the aromatic stacking interactions governing folding, we can control the size of the macrocycle produced on self-assembly.
Congratulations to undergraduates Will Carson, who was awarded an NSF GRF, and Georgia Mantel, who was named a Beckman Scholar!
Welcome to Roshan Lama and Chamoni, who have joined the group as new graduate students! Chamoni is co-supervised with Dr. Dominik Konkolewicz.
A new paper is out in Angew. Chem.! Lasith and Mosharraf review the transient covalent bond as a tool for designing nonequilibrium systems, including molecular machines and dissipative assemblies.
A little late to this, but happy trails to Lasith, who successfully defended his dissertation in August! He is headed off to the University of Nevada Reno for a postdoc with Ying Yang.
