Synthetic Chemistry Beyond The Round Bottom Flask

While analytical technologies that support synthetic organic chemistry in the laboratory have changed dramatically, chemical synthesis itself has remained largely unchanged for over fifty years.  During that time, the round bottom flask has been the workhorse for organic chemists in the synthesis lab.

4 Ways To Improve Organic Synthesis

In collaboration with Pfizer, I will make a presentation on Four Ways To Improve Organic Synthesis on July 20, 2011. Continue reading

Methods For Teaching Chemical Kinetic Experiments

Some of the major challenges faced by researchers (and in particular – organic and analytical chemists) include the need to quickly determine reaction kinetics as well as gain sufficient information to fully understand, characterize and optimize chemical reactions.  This is leading researchers to find innovative ways to obtain the information they require to successfully complete their work.
