SynthesisSynthetic Chemistry faculty use state-of-the-art synthetic techniques to produce natural products and pharmaceuticals as well as create new compounds and materials.  These endeavors facilitate the understanding of biological mechanisms of action of small molecules and macromolecules.  Moreover, the synthesis of new materials can impact catalysis, energy storage and the useful conversion of biomass to synthetically useful materials.
