Summer 2010

This summer Aaron Bender, ’11 and Jacob Stoneburner, ’11, are working in the lab on some new chiral hypervalent iodine reagents.  These reagents are going to be tested on a new substrate, one that was shown by Ishihara, and co-workers to give very high enantioselectivities using their iodide catalyst.  We will use this intramolecular reaction with our aryl iodide catalysts to see if our compounds “compete” with Ishihara’s.
