Graduate student Gretchen Stanton's research profiled

Chemistry is all about the details. While lab work might revolve around scientific discovery, practicalities like time and money are inevitable byproducts. Gretchen Stanton, a chemistry doctoral candidate, is working to combat low efficiency reactions by researching easier ways to build molecular complexity. The major technique she employs is called the one-pot reaction, which speeds the product isolation and purification stages using multiple reactions sequentially. This works to eliminate waste and alleviate costs.
