RSChemistry.com helps students learn how to assign stereocenters, all in the context of important molecules.
Strained heterocyclic allenes represent a class of valuable intermediates that remain underdeveloped. Check out our synthesis of 3,4-oxacyclohexadiene precursors and studies on their utility in trapping reactions and enantiospecific Diels–Alder reactions published in ACIE.
“Collaboration” is not the first word most associate with the field of total synthesis. Yet the complexity of natural products lends itself to advancements not only in synthetic chemistry, but in biocatalysis, biosynthesis, computational chemistry, and drug discovery as well. Here we highlight recent advances in these fields brought on by collaborations in the total synthesis of natural products.
The Garg Laboratory explores new and innovative tools in chemical education, especially those that involve the use of modern technologies. Click on the links below to learn more about our recent efforts in teaching the remarkable undergraduate students at UCLA.
Professor Garg received a B.S. in Chemistry from New York University where he did undergraduate research with Professor Marc Walters. During his undergraduate years, he spent several months in Strasbourg, France while conducting research with Professor Mir Wais Hosseini at Université Louis Pasteur as an NSF REU Fellow.
