Research

Research in the Fair Laboratory focuses on two aspects of organic chemistry. First, we are looking for green and efficient ways to make carbon-carbon and caron-nitrogen bonds. Using water as a green solvent throughout these reactions affords not only cost savings in terms of the fewer chemicals needed, but also in terms of waste.

Second, we are interested in looking for ways to use organolithiums to induce regioselective and / or stereoselective synthesis by means of deprotonation or the lithium-halogen exchange.

We hope to show that the methodology produced in the Fair Laboratory provides clean and efficient new routes for pharmaceutically relevant compounds.
