Research Area

The research in the group of Siegel encompasses molecular design, chemical synthesis, and structural analysis, which constitute the three principle components of modern stereochemistry. Robust transmission of structural and stereo-chemical information is fundamental to selective chemical processes such as (bio)molecular recognition, enantioselective reactions, and the assembly of designed materials. Beyond symmetry and molecular bonding, stereochemical investigations draw upon concepts from many disciplines and implement techniques such as synthetic methodology, X-ray crystallography, NMR spectroscopy, and computational theory.  Research combines synthetic and physical organic chemistry with an eye toward issues of pharmaceutical, material, and life science.
