Grant furthers work of halogen-containing pharmaceutical agents

The research of Weiping Tang, assistant professor in the Pharmaceutical Sciences Division, was awarded $50,000 from the American Chemical Society-Petroleum Research Fund for his proposal, “Catalytic Enantioselective Halogenation of Olefins.”

This proposal focuses on the development of stereoselective methods for the synthesis of biologically active halogen-containing pharmaceutical agents. The ACS-PRF funding is designed for early career faculty.
