The solid-state structure of protonated ketones and aldehydes was published in Angewandte Chemie. This paper is part of Daniel Stuart's M.Sc. research in the Gerken group. Our paper got highlighted in Nature (Nov 10, 2017).
Jamie Goettel successfully defended his M.Sc. thesis on June 11, 2013. His thesis is entitled "Structure and Chemistry of Sulfur Tetrafluoride". He will leave the Gerken lab by the end of the summer. Jamie will stay in fluorine chemistry, pursuing a Ph.D. with Gary J. Schrobilgen at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario.
The Canadian Centre for Research in Advanced Fluorine Technologies (C-CRAFT) was approved by the University of Lethbridge General Faculties Council. The establishment of this centre formally recognizes the high concentration of expertise in fluorine chemistry at the U of L.
