Organic Chemistry Seminar: Zachary K Wickens, Assistant Professor, University of Wisconsin-Madison

Event time: 
March 1, 2023 - 4:00pm to 5:30pm
Event description: 

Join Yale Chemistry for an Organic Chemistry Seminar with Zachary K Wickens, Assistant Professor, University of Wisconsin-Madison.

The primary focus of the Wickens group is the discovery and development of new catalytic principles to address longstanding challenges in organic synthesis. Their central hypothesis is that classically reactive species, such as radical and ionic intermediates, can be tamed and deployed as potent catalysts and recent efforts have focused on the electrochemical generation of new radical ion organocatalysts that exhibit extreme reactivity without sacrificing chemoselectivity.

Date: March 1, 2023
Time: 4:00pm
Location: SCL160
