Bio

His research interests lie in the development and application of new organic synthetic methodology. Current work is focused on the development of a new alpha adrenergic agonist and continued investigations of new methods for selectively deprotecting silyl ethers. Another area of interest is the development of new organic chemistry exercises on the microscale and using microwave technology.

2017-2018 Academic Year

Fall 2017

CHEM 241 Organic Chemistry I with Lab
The major focus of this course is on the reactivities of organic and inorganic molecules; this is an extension of the study of the covalent bond that was studied in Chemistry 141. Topics include reaction types and mechanisms, stereochemistry, nomenclature, and spectroscopic methods. Laboratory work involves the synthesis, analysis and identification of organic and inorganic molecules. Three hours classroom and four hours laboratory per week. Prerequisite: 132 or 141.
