The Senior Program

All senior chemistry students work collaboratively with faculty members on research projects as part of the Senior Program. This intensive two-semester project combines original scientific research with reading and understanding the scientific literature. It culminates in a Senior Thesis that is defended in a public presentation to departmental faculty and student chemistry majors.

Recent projects in chemistry include:

  •  2-Chloro-N-(1-ethoxyvinyl)pyridinium triflate as an electrophile in transition metal-free SNAr reactions with electron-rich aromatic compounds
  • Analysis of Different norbornene derivative electrocatalysts for CO2 Reduction
  • Investigation of Amine Polymer Supports of CoPc Electrocatalyst for CO2 Reduction
  • Covalent Immobilization of Bipyridine-based Rhenium Electrocatalyst for CO2 Reduction
  • Photoredox-Catalyzed Radical Vinylation Alex Szyperek, (Even More) Progress Towards the Total Synthesis of Melokhanine A
