Department of Chemistry Seminar Series: Sharon Neufeldt, Montana State University
Science Building 1, room 107, 1025 SW Mill Street


Montana State University Assistant Professor, Sharon Neufeldt, will present Controlling Site Selectivity in Cross-Coupling Reactions at the Department of Chemistry's weekly seminar series


About Professor Neufeldt

Dr. Neufeldt received her Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in 2013. The Neufeldt Lab studies transition metal-catalyzed reactions of organic compounds. In particular, they explore strategies for using catalysts to induce molecules to react in novel ways. This research includes catalyst design to invert the conventional selectivity of cross coupling reactions, to functionalize hydrocarbons, or to enable other novel transformations. They especially value mechanistic understanding, and they use both experimental and computational (DFT) tools to gather insight into the origin of novel selectivity and reactivity in our catalytic systems.
