Links to Synthetic Organic and Related Groups
I compiled these links to allow rapid access to the relevant web pages by those in the synthetic community, especially as a means for current and prospective graduate students and post-docs to easily learn who is in their field and what their research interests are. Those research groups which pursue synthetic organic chemistry as a significant part of their program are included, although in some cases the P.I.'s identify their research interests as bio-organic, medicinal, organometallic, pharmaceutical or other areas.
This listing is not intended as a comprehensive collection of all academic research groups that use organic synthesis in some part of their program. Rather it focuses on those groups which investigate organic reaction methodology and/or target directed organic synthesis. I am guided principally by the titles of the P.I.'s publications in determining whether his/her URL should be posted. For those investigators in related fields (organic materials, physical organic chemistry, natural products isolation, etc), I encourage the compilation of similar directories as others have done in bioorganic, organometallics, etc. In order to keep the database of a manageable size, I have elected to list only groups at Ph.D. granting institutions. I apologize for any oversights, and request that you email me your URL if you believe that your research group fits the above criteria.
