Associate Professor of Chemistry Ian Rosenstein attended the National Organic Symposium from June 25-28 at the University of Washington in Seattle. This biennial conference, held by the Organic Division of the American Chemical Society, features invited talks on cutting edge research in all aspects of organic chemistry plus several hundred poster presentations.
Rosenstein presented a poster titled "Radical Cascade Reactions of Bicyclic Ring Systems" that was co-authored with Alex Thompson '13, Phillip Milner '10 and Kate Otley '12. The work presented in the poster was a summary of the results obtained by the three students in their senior projects. All three students are currently working toward Ph. D. degrees in chemistry. Milner is a graduate student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Otley and Thompson are both at Yale University.
