Wesley Seniors Jasbir Deol (biological chemistry) and Maryeah Pavey (biology) are co-authors with Wesley College Professor of Chemistry and Associate Dean of Interdisciplinary/Collaborative Sponsored Research Dr. Malcolm D’Souza on an article. The peer-reviewed article, “Statistical Methods for the Investigation of Solvolysis Mechanisms Illustrated by the Chlorides of the Carbomethoxy Protecting Groups NVOC and FMOC,” was published in the Journal of Analytical Methods in Chemistry Volume 2015 (www.hindawi.com/journals/jamc/2015/941638/). The publication is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that reviews articles in all areas of analytical chemistry and publishes original research articles.

This INBRE/EPSCoR sponsored undergraduate research project evaluated very common synthetic carbomethoxy protecting groups used in industrial solid and solution phase applications for peptides and polymer sequences for ag products. Deol is a Cannon Scholar (NSF S-STEM program) who was recently recognized by the DE-American Chemical Society section and has just received a scholarship to join the graduate Temple University, School of Pharmacy program. Pavey has enrolled in the Wesley College MAT program for STEM teachers.
