Our lab clearly has the best undergrads! Our very own James Cox was named a 2018 Goldwater Scholar (1 out of 211 students picked from 1,280 applicants!) in addition to winning a departmental fellowship! We all knew James was one in a million, but now other people are confirming it.
For more information about James, see the department news page (https://chem.umn.edu/news/james-cox-named-2018-goldwater-scholar).
Our most recent paper (The Effect of Proximal Functionality on the Allylic Azide Equilibrium) was selected to design the cover art for an upcoming issue of the European Journal of Organic Chemistry! The art was done by local artist/illustrator/author Drew Brockington (http://brockart.format.com/).
Packard, M. H.; Cox, J. H.; Suding, V. P.; Topczewski, J. J. "The Effect of Proximal Functionality on the Allylic Azide Equilibrium" Eur. J. Org. Chem. 2017, 6365-6368.
Our lab just keeps churning out the papers! Already, paper number three is in the European Journal of Organic Chemistry. Way to go, Mary, James, and Vicky!
Our Chemistry Market Science exhibit was so popular that we got asked back! This time, we went to the Nokomis Farmer's Market. We were so busy though, teaching everyone the joys of chemistry, that we forgot to take pictures. But at least we spread our knowledge and hopefully our love of chemistry.
