Congrats to Christian (PhD ’16), Kevin, Don and undergrad Nick for their latest paper on the Rh-catalyzed synthesis of b-lactones published in Organic Letters.
Congratulations to the two newest PhDs, Don & Ken, from the Howell Group.
Nicole, Christian (PhD ’16) and Amy at the Gordon Research Conference–Organic Reactions and Processes. Stonehill College, MA.
Our work on b-lactones as ABPs in collaboration with Prof. Xudong Yao at UConnChem is published in Analytical Chemistry. Congrats to former grad students Song and Santosh!
Our work on sulfatides in collaboration with Singapore Immunology Network and L’Oreal (Singapore and France) is now published in European Journal of Immunology. Congrats to former grad student Kaddy!
Our collaborative project with Boehringer Ingelheim on transnitrilation chemistry to access 1,4-dicarbofunctionalized arenes is now published in the Journal of Organic Chemistry! Congrats to Christian and Kevin! Link
Our work on selective Pd-catalyzed opening of beta-lactones with amines via acyl C–O bond activation is now online: Org Lett. Congrats to Christian, Don, Nicole, and undergrad Sam!
Congratulations to Dr. Divya Chennamadhavuni who successfully defended her Ph.D. thesis last Friday! She will be continuing her career with a post-doc position with UConn Pharmacy.
Group member Kevin Luvaga had a paper published in Green Chemistry based on the work he did as a summer intern at Boehringer Ingelheim. The paper “Development of a concise, scalable synthesis of a CCR1 antagonist utilizing a continuous flow Curtius rearrangement” can be found here
First-year graduate students Jason, Pascal, Chulangani, and Katherine join the group.
