The chemoselective condensation between aminooxy (RONH2) and carbonyl groups is highlighted in several projects.  The seminar will present our efforts to prepare novel aminooxy reagents as well as our recent aminooxy-based approaches aimed at exploiting the carbonyl-targeting properties.   Specific projects to be discussed include the design and use of a silicon micropreconcentrator for analyzing exhaled breath to screen for lung cancer and the results of our studies on electronic cigarette aerosols.  Just how safe is vaping?
