Cubane: A Synthesis outside of the box.


Andrew M. Egan
Dr. Tim Humphry, Faculty Mentor

Cubane, an 8 carbon cube, has multiple ways to be synthesized, but none have been tested for large-scale batches. Like metals with ligands, cubane can be the focal point of molecules, allowing for just about anything to be added to cubane. Because of this, cubane has many uses in modern chemistry and biochemistry. The synthesis proposed is straightforward, and uses techniques learned through organic chemistry classes.
