Department Seminar: Carolyn E. Anderson
Professor Anderson’s research efforts involve developing facile methods for the synthesis and application of N-alkyl pyridones. N-Alkyl pyridones are interesting motifs due to their prevalence in natural products as well as their ability to serve as biological mimics in pharmaceutical targets. Projects in the group include: optimization of new organic and organometallic reactions, evaluation of reaction scope, and mechanistic studies.
Professor Anderson earned her bachelor's degree in science and chemistry from the University of Michigan, and her doctorate in chemistry from the University of California-Irving.
