We are interested in enabling organic synthesis and reaction development through catalyst design and mechanistic insight.
We aim to identify site- and enantioselective catalysts for the synthesis of drug-like structural motifs and the derivatization of complex molecules.
We use the tools of physical organic chemistry coupled with organic and organometallic chemistry to elucidate reaction mechanisms, origins of selectivity, and controlling noncovalent interactions.
Margaret officially joined the Department of Chemistry at WVU. Excited to get started this summer!
