Sulfate Esters: Friend or Foe?

Bruce J. Dolenz* and Andrew P. Wright
Dr. Tim Humphry, Faculty Mentor

Sulfate esters are common aerosolized molecules found in the atmosphere above nearly all environments. Little is known about the effects of these molecules on living organisms and as such, it is beneficial to study them to determine properties such as toxicity and methods of formation. In collaboration with Dr. Elizabeth Stone at the University of Iowa, synthesis schemes for these sulfate esters are experimentally formulated and then evaluated using nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and x-ray crystallography. In this research, the molecule o-Cresol Sulfate was studied. 

Keywords: Chemistry, Organic Synthesis, Sulfate Esters, O-Cresol Sulfate
