About

Graduate students in the Organic Chemistry of Natural Products program at the SUNY - College of Environmental Science and Forestry take a one-year course sequence in mechanistic organic chemistry and another in synthetic organic chemistry. Additionally, one-semester courses are required in physical chemistry and the organic chemistry of natural products.

Overview

We offer a master degree in Organic Chemistry of Natural Products at the SUNY - College of Environmental Science and Forestry. Courses in biochemistry, inorganic chemistry, statistics and specialized courses in chemistry or biology may be arranged and selected by the student in consultation with faculty.

Research in the field of organic chemistry of natural products takes three paths. These paths are the isolation and characterization of new natural substances; the synthesis of new or improved syntheses of better-known natural substances; and the study of the relation of molecular structure to biological response. Chemical research in each of these areas is coupled with biological testing. 

Natural products faculty interest areas:

  • structure and function of natural metal chelators 
  • marine and freshwater algal toxins 
  • synthesis and biosynthesis of biologically active natural products 
  • analysis and structure determination of sterodial compounds 
  • isolation and identification of insect and mammalian pheromones and other semiochemicals such as alleomones and kairomones
  • synthesis of new natural products (semiochemicals) with particular emphasis on stereochemistry
