We discussed news stories and research articles that we had seen recently and we proposed topics for future discussion. We also heard from Emily about the new direction her senior thesis has taken.

    • In utero or neonatal exposure to bisphenol A alters methylation of DNA and is linked to disease as adults. Some DNA changes can be negated through maternal food supplements, July 30, 2007 (Link)
  • Cameron molds that survive on gamma rays
  • Jordan
  • Alan
    • Atom economic synthesis of amides via transition metal catalyzed rearrangement of oxaziridines (possible application to FeTAML synthesis?) (DOI: 10.1039/b706164a)
    • What is a green solvent? A comprehensive framework for the environmental assessment of solvents (DOI: 10.1039/b617536h)
