  UCAN Understand Curved Arrow Notation! Animated Mechanisms of Organic Reactions

Chem 328 Syllabus (Section 015)   

Chem 326 Syllabus (Section 025)   

We are interested in the interdisciplinary areas between organic chemistry, nanotechnology, and photodynamics.
Currently our research is focused on the three following projects:

1. Synthesis, controlled functionalization, and application of nanoparticles for biochemical, medical, catalysis, and industrial polymer applications 

2. Photo sensitized cytotoxicity of quinones as potential PDT agents 

3. Catalysis by carbons and deposited materials (Pd, vanadia, titania. etc.)
