Once again, the Chemistry Department’s holiday party, organized largely by the graduate students, was held on campus at the Daniel Family Commons at the end of last semester. It is always a highlight of the year and nearly everyone attended. The addition of Wesleyan Chemistry Department Trivia was a huge success (except for the time one answer sheet was incorrectly scored. Never fear, Professor Westmoreland demanded to get his points back!!) And a big thank you goes out to Andrea Lee who organized it for us. Photos from the event are below.
An article from a recent Wesleyan University PhD graduate, Dr. Stephen Frayne, was recently published in the Journal of Organic Chemistry.
The article, “Evaluating Byproduct Formation during Phosphine – and Amine-Promoted Thiol-Methyl Acrylate Reactions” may be found here.
