Chemistry major Taylor Dover has been selected to receive an Elizabeth Long Atwood Undergraduate Research Award. The award is in recognition of his published paper completed in CHEM 332: Physical Chemistry with Dr. Antonio Brathwaite.
The paper, “Fluorinated alcohols: powerful promoters for ring-opening reactions of epoxides with carbon nucleophiles” was published in ARKIVOC, an open access journal in the area of organic chemistry.
This award from the Emory Libraries recognizes students who have demonstrated excellence in undergraduate research.
Along with Dr. Brathwaite, Taylor’s co-author and Emory research advisor, Dr. Frank McDonald provided a letter in support of Taylor’s award.
Taylor graduated in May 2021 and is headed to Yale University in the fall to pursue his PhD in organic chemistry. During his time at Emory, Taylor also received a Barry Goldwater Award, an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, and induction to Phi Betta Kappa Honor Society.
