Research

My research group is composed of entirely undergraduate students. Our research efforts are primarily in the field of organic synthesis. Currently, there are six areas of research that the Ippoliti group is actively involved in. All six of these areas are in organic synthesis. Specifically, these six areas are: synthesis of novel antimicrobial molecules, synthesis of luminol derivatives, synthesis of radioopaque polymers, new synthetic methodology for reduction of amides, synthesis of thermochromic molecules and synthesis of antimalarial molecules. All of these areas will give the student experience in carrying out reactions, purifying products and structure elucidation using nmr spectroscopy.

 

I am also involved in projects concerning the analysis of polyurethanes by nmr spectroscopy.
