Project description

The SO2S network seeks to exploit Singlet Oxygen (O2) as a green and benign oxidant for use in novel synthetic methodologies, crosslinking strategies, bioconjugation procedures and materials production. The chemistry described herein generates the means to both understand and influence biological systems by providing probes and reagants - from analytical methods to new drugs
