Engle Lab Beach BBQ

The Engle lab took time away from lab to enjoy some time on the beach to celebrate Forrest’s completion of his internship and to welcome Pusu and Elaine to the group. Even though the skies were grey, we were not deterred. We grilled a lot of good food, relaxed in the sand, played volleyball and soccer, and wrapped up the night up with a game of Werewolf. Awesome way to wind down the summer!

Original NMR Files Now Available in Publications

As of last week, the Engle lab has begun publishing original NMR spectra (as MNova zip files)  with all papers. Our goal is make it easier for end-users to adopt new reactions from our laboratory and to promote the highest possible levels of transparency in chemical research.  Check out the Supporting Information pages for our recent alkene dicarbofunctionalization and carboamination reactions for more details. Spectrometer files (FIDs) are also available upon request.


Hydroamination Review is Online

The article covers the historical context for our group’s work in this area, published results from our laboratory, as well as outlook and perspective. Thanks to the Editorial Board at Synlett for the awesome opportunity to contribute this Synpact article, and congrats to John on a well-written piece! Click here for a link to the paper
