Congrats to Ryan and En-Chih! Our recent paper on decarboxylative cross-coupling (https://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/acs.orglett.9b01620) is hilighted in OPR&D (https://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/acs.oprd.9b00327).
Both Angela and En-Chih were awarded a department Excellence Fellowship for the 2019/2020 academic year! It is great that their excellent accomplishments have been rewarded! Well-deserved and keep it up.

En-Chih's many long hours of working on an enantioselective click reaction have finally paid off, because his paper was just accepted to JACS!
Way to go En-Chih! We're sure this is the first of many!

Once again, on STEM day at the state fair, we taught everyone how cool chemistry is! From learning about ocean acidification to making a hidden message (or some slime!) everyone had a good time. Thanks to Market Science (https://marketsci.org/) for helping us spread our love of chemistry!
On Saturday, the Topczewski lab once again showed the Midtown Market that chemistry is fun and interesting! Despite the wind, almost 100 people came to learn about ocean acidification, precipitation reactions, catalysis, and how to make slime!
