Research Description
.Most of our research has centered on the study of free radical reactions. Areas of interest include: Mechanism of the free radical reactions of natural products such as lipids and phospholipids with molecular oxygen; mechanism and utility of free radical reactions in the construction of new substructures; and the control of stereochemistry in free radical additions, including polymerization, reactions in aggregates, such as micelles and membrane bilayers, and enzyme photoactivation.
