The Wightman Group

The Wightman Group

Research in the Wightman Group is directed at the development of microsensors and their use to measure chemical events in microenvironments. We have developed ultramicroelectrodes that are robust chemical sensors, which can resolve chemical events with micron or submicron spatial resolution. In addition, these probes can be used for measurements on the nanosecond time scale and in environments in which electrochemical measurements are normally impossible.

 

The Johnson Group

The Johnson Group

The Jeff Johnson Group focuses on the development of new synthetic methods for the assembly of stereochemically complex small molecules. We are particularly interested in the design and synthesis of tailor-made reagents and catalysts for multicomponent reactions. In our recent investigations of several interesting problems, our continuing interest in the exploitation of ring strain as a source of novel reactivity led us to some mechanistically unusual heterocycle-forming cycloadditions of cyclopropanes and aldehydes. On another front, we are interested in the development of dipolar synthons for the coupling of complementary nucleophilic and electrophilic reaction partners. Our development of silyl glyoxylate reagents is an example of work in this area.
