RED-LIGHT-INDUCED NPR-DMQA+-CATALYZED [3+2] CYCLOADDITION OF CYCLOPROPYLAMINES WITH ALKENES OR ALKYNES
A red-light-mediated [3+2] annulation of cyclopropylamines with akenes or alkynes in the presence of nPr-DMQA+ has been reported. An array of cyclopentane or cyclopentene derivatives with diverse functional groups have been obtained in moderate to excellent yields under mild conditions.
THE GROUP RECEIVED AN NSF GRANT
The Gianetti group received a grant of $475k for 3 years from the NSF Chemical Synthesis, for our work on “ Development of Stable Carbocations for Lewis Acid-Assisted Transformations".
THE GROUP RECEIVED AN NSF I-CORPS GRANT
I-Corps enables the transformation of invention to impact. The curriculum integrates scientific inquiry and industrial discovery in an inclusive, data-driven culture driven by rigor, relevance, and evidence. Through I-Corps training, researchers can reduce the time to translate a promising idea from the laboratory to the marketplace.
T. GIANETTI RECEIVED THE 2021 COTTRELL SCHOLARS AWARD
Recipients are chosen through a rigorous peer-review process of applications from top research universities, degree-granting research institutes, and primarily undergraduate institutions in the United States and Canada. Their award proposals incorporate both science education and research.
