The Uffelman Research Group

The Uffelman group is developing a set of novel polyamide macrocyclic ligands in order to expand the fundamental chemistry and Green Chemistry applications of iron-catalyzed oxidation reactions. Currently we are in our third iteration of ligand syntheses, which has been highly successful. This research program has, to date, involved forty-two different undergraduates, who gain experience in various NMR techniques, IR spectroscopy, inert atmosphere synthetic methods, and organic and inorganic synthesis. Sixteen of these students have done more than one summer of research in the group.
