Biography

Jordan L. Fantini, an organometallic chemist, is interested in the synthesis and characterization of methylene-bridge-substituted calixarenes.  These molecules provide access to new structural motifs in calixarene chemistry.  A methylene-bridge substituent allows for modification of the solubility, conformational rigidity, and conformational preferences of a calixarene in comparison to the unsubstituted species.
