Raymond J. Giguere
B.A. Kalamazoo College
Professor Giguere conducts research with undergraduates in the area of organic synthesis. His interests range from the application of microwaves to conduct organic reactions to development of novel intramolecular cyclizations, such as tandem Diels-Alder and allyl cation cycloadditions. This work has resulted in the publication of over twenty-five articles, many of which have undergraduates as co-authors. Since 1983 over one hundred chemistry majors have conducted undergraduate research in Prof. Giguere's labs.
