Assistant Professor of Chemistry Nicole L. Snyder presented research at the American Chemical Society National Meeting in San Francisco in March. Her talk was titled “Synthesis of carbohydrate-porphyrins conjugates via palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling approach.” 

Snyder reported on the synthesis of several mono-, di- and tetrasubstituted carbohydrate porphyrin conjugates using a novel palladium-catalyzed cross-coupling approach. 

Hamilton students Taylor Adams ’11, Peter Garrett ’11, Kevin Graepel ’11 and Graham Hone ’10 each played an important role in the research Snyder presented. The methodology developed by Snyder and her students will be used to generate water soluble catalysts and new therapeutics. This research was conducted in collaboration with Professor Peter Zhang’s group at the University of South Florida and was funded by a Petroleum Research Fund SRF grant.
