Honor Research update #1: Research done during last semester

Hi everyone,

It has been a long while since my last post. I was busy at doing my in-lab research experiments together with some data gathering. Last semester, I spent the majority of my time synthesizing proposed ligands. One was successfully synthesized, and the other one was never coming out. Continuing the same results from summer research, column chromatography was still a major challenge for purifying desired products.

Organic synthesis needs not only perfect ratio of reagents but also promising reaction environment, which sometimes our lab does not have. The only solution is carrying out the same reaction again and again, and hopefully the desirable result can come out.
