Everyone talks about the “synthetic community”, especially in natural product synthesis. Well, as most of the talk outside of the literature is bitching discussing the inadequacies of other work, I thought I’d start a relevant blog on the inter-web. Feel free to disagree, rant or even praise the work I discuss, but remember to keep it civil.

I’ve used DOI’s to link to the literature; if you’ve never used them, read this.

I’m a medicinal chemist at Arrow Therapeutics in London.  We’re a ‘wholly owned subsidiary’ of AstraZeneca, with a particular focus on infection.  I never catch a cold…  I finished my DPhil (also known as a PhD at lesser institutions :)) in July of 2008.  I worked on a total synthesis under the supervision of Dr. Jonathan Burton at Trinity College, Oxford (DOI: 10.1039/b802473a).  (However, we actually started in Cambridge, but Jon moved university in my third year).  I did my undergrad at Heriot-Watt University, with a year of that at UM St. Louis, working with Professor Christopher Spilling; My MChem project was with Drs. Cooke and Howarth, and a summer project with Dr Arno Kraft (DOI: 10.1021/ol053072+).

Some thanks: I’d like to thank the rest of the Burton
