Bioorganic and Medicinal Chemistry

“Nothing in life is worthwhile unless you take risks, fall forward. Every failed experiment is one step closer to succuss.”

I’m a BS student, and in my Senior year. My Summer Research Project that i carried out these summers was based on finding a novel new method to synthesize chromane – an inhibitor of the DENV Protease. Since the reaction hadn’t been done before, the synthesis I carried out didn’t result in the desired Organic Product’s complete isolation, however in collaboration with a MS student, Maham, a second reaction with differing conditions and reactants was setup. This synthesis proved to be a success, leaving room for countless other fruitful reactions to be achieved in the future. All in all it was a very enlightening experience and i learned alot about organic synthesis through this project
