Congratulations to David, Orla and Mark who all presented their research results at a poster session today. They are pictured here with other members of the McGarrigle group and Michael and Maeve who were project students in the Casey group who they worked alongside in the lab. The poster session preceded the UCD Chemistry Society‘s Inaugural Lecture yesterday. The Inaugural lecture itself was given by Prof David Leigh (The University of Manchester). Today also marks the day when their final year undergraduate research projects end. We wish Mark, David, Orla, Michael and Maeve well for the coming final year exams, and say a big thank you for all their hard-work during the year on their projects.
Our article on bromoethyldiphenylsulfonium triflate has been published online in the Encyclopedia of Reagents for Organic Synthesis (e-EROS). The article reviews the applications of this sulfonium salt in organic synthesis. We previously published several papers describing how this salt and related reagents can be used in the synthesis of heterocycles.
