Sergey Pronin Receives NSF CAREER Award!

Congratulations to Sergey Pronin for being awarded an NSF CAREER Award! His project, "Development of catalytic enantioselective hydrofunctionalizations of alkenes" allows Professor Pronin and his students to continue to develop new methods for the direct conversion of compounds that contain a double bond between two carbon atoms (i.e., alkenes) to compounds that contain nitrogen (amines), a oxygen-hydrogen groups (alcohols), and their derivatives.
