Majireck Presents Research at Two Conferences and a Seminar

Associate Professor of Chemistry Max Majireck made good use of his sabbatical to present his laboratory’s latest research at two recent international conferences (the Spring National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in San Diego, Calif., and the Florida Heterocycles Conference in Gainesville, Fla.), as well as a local seminar at Union College.

Each presentation described the development of new class of reagents for organic synthesis, known as pyridinium ketene hemiaminals, which is anticipated to have a broad range of applications, particularly in the synthesis of bioactive, drug-like compounds. More than 25 Hamilton undergraduates have participated in this research, some of which the group has already published.

At Union, Majireck also described broader efforts by his laboratory to impact the fields of chemical synthesis and drug discovery. Travel support was provided by the Dean of Faculty’s Office and the C. A. Johnson Teaching Enhancement Fellowship.
