Research Impact & Significance – This image was captured while performing column chromatography in order to purify a intermediate of a multi-step organic synthesis project. Organic synthesis plays an important part in a variety of fields, including medicine. My research aims to develop synthetic pathways to derivatives of common pharmacological agents, such as ibuprofen and amphetamines. The resulting derivatives could then be studied in order to determine the affect of altering an aspect of the compound on its medicinal properties.
