Establishing an integrated biocatalytic Friedel-Crafts platform for the alkylation of aromatic small molecules | McKean, Iain

Project: Research Studentship Case - Internally allocated

Project Details


Joint authorship of a review article.

Layman's description

This method could be used to show if a reaction has succeeded through the output of green light.

Key findings

As part of my research I co-authored a review article into the use of RNA for labeling and imaging. This is directly linked to my award as the article covers a strategy which will be of particular relevance later on in my project. In future I wish to develop a high throughput screen for methylation of small aromatic molecules and such a method is described therein. This method will work by the detection of a byproduct of the methylation reaction causing a measurable fluorescence output to occur.
