Welcome to the group Chris

After a semester of intense rotations, we’re excited that Chris Poff has decided to join the BlakeyLab – inventing reactions and revolutionizing synthetic strategy! Chris is focusing his research on designing new catalysts for stereoselective C-H fucntionalization

Opening up a new line of research

Jacob’s manuscript describing oxidative allylic C-H amination of disubstituted olefins is on line at Angew. Chem. (http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/anie.201707021/full). We’re excited about all the possibilities in this area… watch this space for the next installments.

Congrats on your first paper Jacob – great way to start!

Qinqin’s papers are online!

Qinqin’s paper on the synthesis and C-H functionalization of new PDI-thiazole building blocks is online at JOC (http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/acs.joc.7b01604), and her collaborative work using our C-I iodination chemistry to contribute to the synthesis and understanding of new intermediate sized donor molecules for organic solar cells is online at Chemistry of Materials (http://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/acs.chemmater.7b02665).

Congrats on some great work Qinqin!

Welcome Ana

Ana Cheng has joined the group for a summer rotation – we’re excited to welcome you to Emory, and looking forward to working with you discovering new oxidative coupling reactions.
