Spotlight on Brooklyn Chemistry

  • Professor Greer and Andrés H. Thomas of National University of La Plata, Argentina were awarded a joint CONICET-NSF grant for a research project titled “Pointsource Photodynamic Therapy Using Pterins and Photosensitizers”.

  • Assistant professors Ryan Murelli and Emilio Gallicchio publish "Synthetic alpha-hydroxytropolones as inhibitors of HIV reverse transcriptase ribonuclease H activity" in MedChemComm.

  • Associate Professor Contel publishes "Water-compatible gold and silver nanoparticles as catalysts for the oxidation of alkenes" in the journal Polyhedron. Two undergraduate students contributed to this research.

  • A video-tribute to Professor Roberto Sanchez-Delgado from Professor David Cole-Hamilton from St. Andrews University (Scotland).  A research symposium in honor of Sanchez-Delgado will be held at Brooklyn College on August 19.
