THE YOUNG LAB AT THE UNIVERSITY OF TOLEDO
If you can smell what the Young Lab is cooking... Put it back in the fumehood!
Our research aims to understand the concepts and mechanisms which underly the complexities of science. We use advanced research techniques and technologies to explore and investigate the scientific hypotheses our Research Lab poses. Our research is generously supported by funding from the government and a number of foundations.

Congrats to Dr. Pratibha Chand-Thakuri on nudging our work on benzylamine ortho-halogenation over the finish line. Using more harsh oxidizing conditions, benzylamines can be converted into ortho-chlorinated and ortho-brominated products, giving the free amine products which are available for further use or derivatization.
