Welcome to the Stephenson Group

Our group is interested in developing methodologies that harness the power of visible light to mediate reactions that are useful for the synthesis of biologically active molecules. We conduct photo- and electrochemical reactions in both batch and continuous flow manifolds with the goal of developing methods to access unique chemical space.

The Stephenson lab is dedicated to maintaining a climate of inclusivity, mutual respect, and understanding. We believe that diversity is the cornerstone of innovation as it allows people from distinct backgrounds to contribute their experiences to the chemical problem-solving process, whether it be an idea for a useful synthetic method or a novel way of disconnecting a natural product.

De Novo design of new N-oxyl electrocatalysts!

In 2021 we published a paper in JACS detailing the mechanism of PINO decomposition under electrocatlytic conditions. Today, we introduce hydantoin-N-oxyls as novel oxidation electrocatalysts that circumvent the previously observed catalyst degradation pathway. This multidisciplinary project published in Angewandte Chemie has been made possible working with outstanding collaborators from the Maldonado and Pratt labs. Congratulations to all!
