Byers Group

Research Interests:

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.

Techniques used:

  • NMR
  • IR
  • UV-Vis
  • GC-MS

Lab Group:

  • Zeest Hassan ‘17.5
  • Peter Dykeman-Bermingham ‘18.5
