Emory freshman Kim Sharp has joined the BlakeyLab – inventing reactions and revolutionizing synthetic strategy! Kim is excited to develop new sequential C-H amination strategies to synthesize pharmaceutically important motifs.
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 Aaron and Chris
We’re excited to work with Aaron and Chris during their first rotation in the PhD program. Welcome to the group!
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.
We’re excited to have Amber Scharnow join the team for a summer rotation. Welcome to Emory and the Blakey group Amber.
Introducing… Dr. Andreansky
Congrats on completing a wonderful body of work, and a successful Ph.D. defense Eric!
Emory freshman, and Blakey Lab researcher Thomas Kowal-Safron was awarded a Chemistry Department Early Career Research Grant.
Stereochemical complexity in cascade reactions
Aidi and Eric’s latest was recently published in J. Org. Chem. Congrats team!
