Research in Organic Chemistry
At NCSU graduate students have a large number of active research groups to choose from for their dissertation studies. All organic research areas, including synthetic, mechanistic, medicinal, bioorganic, organometallic, combinatorial, materials, and catalytic chemistry are represented, usually by multiple research groups. In addition, most of our research is multidisciplinary and collaborative in nature, exposing doctoral students to techniques and scientific ideas outside of their day-to-day research experiences. The instrumental support for research at NCSU is outstanding, with numerous NMR, mass spectrometry, x-ray, and computational facilities for student use. Everyone is strongly encouraged to acquire hands-on experience with these state-of-the-art instruments that are crucial for a successful research career.
