Professor Robert Flowers- Spring 2017

Robert Flowers gave an invited lecture entitled, “Unraveling the Mechanism of Single-Electron Transfer in Synthetic Reactions” at the International Symposium on Organic Free Radicals in Shanghai, China on October 13, 2016. He also gave an invited seminar at the Department of Chemistry, Loyola University Chicago in April 2016. His research group has been very busy and published the following:
