Senior Summer 2012

The newest derivative chosen is much better than my second choice.  The synthesis is pretty good, meaning it does not take up too much time and the reagents are not undesirable.  I began to purify it when a fellow chemistry student noticed my purification procedure on this occasion was not so great. She helped me improve my technique and even helped me while I conducted the purification.  I had a great time this summer.  Thank you to all who made it possible.  Prof. Harbron, fellow lab-mates, the Charles Center and Ms. Libby Costas from the Cummings organization.  Who could forget the awesome W&M Chemistry Dept.
