Three Beckman Scholars Turn Student Poster Presentation into Rare Collaboration between College and Industry

  • Tuesday, June 12, 2018

Beckman Scholars Chris AmEnde ('02), Nicholas Ball ('03) & Cristian Woroch ('18) brought together Pomona College and Pfizer to introduce a new method toward sulfonamides from sulfonyl fluorides using a calcium salt. The rare collaboration between a small liberal arts college and industry resulted in the first method to use a single set of reaction conditions for the transformation - and may highlight the sulfonyl fluoride as a useful precursor to sulfonylation reactions. ABSTRACT:  ..
