Undergraduate Laboratory


The Garg laboratory has developed a new undergraduate laboratory experiment, with generous support from the American Chemical Society's Green Chemistry Institute's Pharmaceutical Roundtable. The experiment provides an opportunity for students to learn about cross-coupling reactions, non-precious metal catalysis, green chemistry, and heterocyclic compounds.
