The American Chemistry Society AGFD Young Scientist Award was created to recognize outstanding research in agricultural and food chemistry by a young scientist who's last last degree was earned within the last 12 years. Congratulations!
The Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP) is a unique experience for undergraduate students to explore cutting-edge research at the University of Ottawa while they define their professional goals. At the end of each year, a symposium is held to showcase their research.
Benzyl-substituted anilines are useful target molecules for organic synthesis. Previously developed approaches to these substrates include hydroarylation, Pd- or Ni-catalyzed cross-coupling, and the traditional Friedel-Crafts reaction. However, there is still room for alternative preparation methods, especially taking into account chemo- and regioselectivity.
The Young Scientist Research Award recognizes substantial research contributions in one of the areas represented by an AOCS Division. Eligible candidates are younger than 36 years old by June 1 of the year of presentation, or have received their highest degree within the previous ten years. Candidates' contributions must be significant in basic or applied research, and the research has significantly effected an advance within their discipline, or hold substantial promise for such an effect in the near future.
