Tomasz Wdowik

Tomasz Wdowik, 6th-year PhD student in Prof. Chemler’s group

Notable Recent Achievements

  • First-author publication: Tomasz Wdowik and Sherry R. Chemler, “Direct Synthesis of 2-Formylpyrrolidines, 2-Pyrrolidinones and 2-Dihydrofuranones via Aerobic Copper-Catalyzed Aminooxygenation and Dioxygenation of 4-Pentenylsulfonamides and 4-Pentenylalcohols”, JACS2017139 (28), pp 9515–9518

Research Highlight

"My research focuses on exploring oxygen as a reagent and/or oxidant for copper-catalyzed reactions that are useful for the synthesis of nitrogen and oxygen based heterocycles.

I enjoy a variety of resources that the Department of Chemistry and UB at large provide to extend my knowledge and skills in organic chemistry and beyond.

In my free time, I enjoy attending concerts, traveling, running, cycling and kayaking."

Congratulations, Tomasz!
