The Byers group is a synthetic organic chemistry lab that focuses on synthesizing and characterizing highly conjugated organometallic polymers. The current polymer of interest is a chromium complexed poly(p-phenylene ethynylene) polymer. This polymer is synthesized by the palladium and copper catalyzed Sonogashira cross coupling reaction.
