Organic Chemistry Program

The entire breadth of organic chemistry and its interface with other fields of study ranging from materials science to biochemistry is represented in the research opportunities in the organic division at Florida State University. Current faculty research programs range from computational and physical organic chemistry to synthetic organic and bioorganic chemistry, and interdisciplinary research collaborations are also underway. As the questions being asked get continually more sophisticated, the ability to answer them increasingly depends on access to the most uptodate research instrumentaion, which we are fortunate to have at FSU. Some of the current organic chemistry research areas are:

* synthesis of natural products and other biologically important compounds
* asymmetric synthesis
* synthesis of enzyme inhibitors
* organometallic-based new synthetic methods
* laser spectroscopy to study organic reactions and intermediates
* mechanism of photochemical reactions
* intra- and intermolecular interactions and solvent effects
* molecular imprinting and supramolecular control of reactivity
* computation of stereoelectronic effects on reactions
