美国达特茅斯学院化学系：David M. Lemal教授的研究小组 (有机氟化学)
Organofluorine chemistry; unusual organic species, stable and short-lived
David M. Lemal,
Professor of Chemistry
Professor Lemal received an A.B. degree from Amherst College in 1955 and a Ph.D. from Harvard University in 1959. He became an Instructor at the University of Wisconsin in 1958 and an Assistant Professor in 1960. In 1965 he joined the Dartmouth Chemistry Department as Associate Professor and served as Chairman during 1976-79. Since 1981 he has been the Albert W. Smith Professor of Chemistry.
Professor Lemal's group is interested in the synthesis and chemistry of unusual organic species, both stable and short-lived, and in the mechanism of organic reactions. Their efforts are focused in organofluorine chemistry. Fluorocarbons and derived materials have found a wide variety of applications in commerce and industry, but there is much to be learned about fundamental aspects of the field and a great need for new synthetic methodology. Among the fascinations of this vast area are the dramatic contrasts in properties and chemical behavior which exist between fluorocarbons and their hydrocarbon counterparts. The Lemal research group is engaged in the synthesis and study of target molecules chosen both for the synthetic challenges they pose and for insights they can afford into questions about structure, properties, reactivity and/or mechanism in organofluorine chemistry. Many of the targets incorporate strained rings and/or highly reactive conjugated systems. Orbital topology-con
trolled reactions figure prominently in this chemistry, and photochemistry plays an important role as a source of both synthetic methods and mechanistic puzzles.
