Thank you to the lab who made a return trip to Market Science at the MN State Fair. We had ~275 participants and made >180 batches of slime!
Thank you to those who helped make market Science a sucess at the Midtown Market!
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!
For all of those Star Wars fans out there, read our latest publication, ""It's a (Kinetic) Trap!": Selectively Differentiating Allylic Azide Isomers" in Synpacts! Find it on our Publications page, or at https://www.thieme-connect.de/products/ejournals/abstract/10.1055/s-0037-1609479
Our second paper submitted to the Journal of the American Chemical Society was just accepted! Congratulations to Matt, Rami, and Cristian!
Stereoselective Dynamic Cyclization of Allylic Azides: Synthesis of Tetralins, Chromanes, and Tetrahydroquinones
In collaboration with Market Science (https://marketsci.org/), we went to the state fair to teach kids from all over about how fun chemistry can be! I don't know who had more fun: the kids, the adults, or us volunteers! Overall, we taught over 400 people about ocean acidification, precipitation reactions, catalysis, and how to make slime!To learn more about STEM Day at the state fair, visit http://www.mnstatefair.org/entertainment/special_days_events.html or https://www.facebook.com/MNSTEMDay/
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!
