Functional polymeric materials for advanced applications.
|550 Organic Chemistry Lab|
|Marc A. Boudreau, Assistant Professor||Arriving Fall 2015. Our lab utilizes organic chemistry and chemical biology to study antibiotic resistance in bacteria. Organic synthesis is used to access new compounds that either exhibit unexplored mechanisms of inhibition against known bacterial targets, or that can function as probes for the identification of new targets. The synthesized compounds are evaluated in-house against clinically relevant bacterial strains and against their proposed enzyme targets. The mechanism of inhibition of active compounds is studied in detail, which is then utilized to inform the rational design of improved inhibitors.|
|Christine A. Caputo, Assistant Professor||Arriving Fall 2015. Design and synthesis of new organic and organometallic complexes that can act as catalysts or precursors for the deveopment of new photoactive materials. Photochemical and electrochemical techniques are used to test for catalytic activity and spectroscopic methods are used to study the photophysical properties of new materials. Current research projects are focussed on using Earth-abundant metals to synthesize organometallic complexes for the catalytic conversion of small molecules (e.g. CO2 N2, O2, H2O etc.) into more valuable sustainable fuel precursors using sunlight.|
