[PAST EVENT] Chemistry Spring Seminar
Janis Louie of the University of Utah presents
"Adventures in Fe Catalysis"
The central theme of Prof. Louis? research is the discovery, development, and utilization of transition metal catalyzed reactions to overcome obstacles in traditional synthetic approaches. Ultimately, her group hopes to provide synthetic chemists with a convenient and abbreviated approach to molecules rich with structural and/or functional diversity. Efforts are divided into catalyst discovery and optimization, mechanism elucidation, and application toward the construction of small molecules.
