Congratulations to Marc Kawada ’20, one of this year’s Fletcher Jones Science Scholars at Occidental! With the support of this prestigious award, Marc will continue his research developing methods to make new carbon-carbon bonds using visible light-harvesting catalysts.
Congratulations to Natalie, Tina, Molly, and Jeff! Their work on the diastereoselective synthesis of unnatural amino acids has been accepted to Journal of Organic Chemistry!
Congratulations to the Bulletproof Gang! Nick, Katherine, Anne Marie, Max, and Jeff’s paper on dual Lewis acid/photoredox- catalyzed ketyl radical additions to vinylogous carbonates has been accepted to Organic Letters!
Another summer in the lab has come to an end, but we had a great time presenting our research to our peers at the URC’s Summer Research Conference. We are looking forward to continuing our work into the semester! Good luck to our former members, Katherine and Scott, who stayed for one final summer before they begin graduate school in the fall!
Check out Molly’s “My Oxy Story” currently featured on Oxy’s new students page! We’re very proud she was able to make the most of the opportunity to do research with us at Oxy.
Congratulations to Anne Marie Crooke ’19, one of this year’s Norris Science Scholars at Occidental! Anne Marie will use this prestigious award to continue her research using catalysts that harvest visible light to synthesize carbon-carbon bonds.
Cannon lab members Matt Schmidt ’18 and Natalie Dwulet ’17 were featured in a recent article on Oxy’s website highlighting their work in the summer research program. We’re always excited to share our love of o-chem with our friends!
