Thank you NSF!

We are pleased to announce that the group has received strong support in the form of a National Science Foundation research grant. Prof. ACJ has been awarded an NSF: Career award to develop her educational and scholarly activities. This grant will fund our investigations of the mechanisms of gold catalyzed reactions, and support the training of undergraduate and graduate students. Check back here for more details on our plans!

Summer Travels, A Telluride Treat

Sign Group

This July, I (Prof. Jones) had the pleasure of attending a truly unique conference. Over the course of 5 days in Telluride, a small group of 14 chemists met for intensive discussion of their research. Each person had ca. 90 minutes to present their work. The environment was highly collegial and interactive. I feel like I got to know these people very well, and obtained some excellent feedback on my group’s work. I look forward to future discussions/interactions with this great group of chemists.

A big thank you to the organizers, Matt McIntosh, Kay Brummond, and Dean Tantillo, and to the Telluride Research Science Center for being host to such a great event.

There was a lot of chemistry discussed, but there was also a little time for this:


Molecules and Music

The seeds for this project were planted long ago — before I even joined the Stoltz group.
A lot of labor went into completing it, and I’m proud to finally see it published!
