Organic Chemistry at SDSU
The study of organic chemistry at SDSU spans the development of
new methodologies, synthesis of organometallic and organoboron
compounds, bioorganic photoactivity, and catalysis.
Research groups in this area at SDSU are listed below.
- Jeffrey Gustafson: Asymmetric catalysis, medicinal chemistry, chemical biology
- Byron Purse: unnatural nucleosides, fluorescent probes, medicinal chemistry, self-assembly, molecular recognition
- B. Mikael Bergdahl:
asymmetric total synthesis of natural products, organometallic chemistry,
bioorganic chemistry and chiral synthesis with the emphasis on catalysis and
- Thomas Cole:
boron/organometallic chemistry; computational organic chemistry.
- Douglas Grotjahn:
organometallics and bioinorganic chemistry.
