2000 - Fellow of Alfred P. Sloan Foundation
His primary areas of investigation include Catalysis, Organic chemistry, Intramolecular force, Hydroamination and Yield. His Catalysis research includes elements of Indole test, Molecule and Medicinal chemistry. Ross A. Widenhoefer interconnects 1h nmr spectroscopy, Carbene, Palladium and Phosphine in the investigation of issues within Medicinal chemistry.
The concepts of his Intramolecular force study are interwoven with issues in Platinum, Olefin fiber, Polymer chemistry, Alkene and Nucleophile. His Hydroamination research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Carbamate and Nitrogen. He works mostly in the field of Hydroalkoxylation, limiting it down to concerns involving Allene and, occasionally, Photochemistry.
Ross A. Widenhoefer mostly deals with Catalysis, Medicinal chemistry, Yield, Organic chemistry and Intramolecular force. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Catalysis, Photochemistry and Cycloaddition is strongly linked to Cationic polymerization. Ross A. Widenhoefer has included themes like Regioselectivity, Allylic rearrangement, Stereochemistry, Carbene and Phosphine in his Medicinal chemistry study.
His research investigates the link between Stereochemistry and topics such as Crystallography that cross with problems in Ligand. His research integrates issues of Indole test, Bicyclic molecule and Moiety in his study of Yield. His studies in Intramolecular force integrate themes in fields like Enantioselective synthesis, Pyrrolidine, Olefin fiber, Allene and Nucleophile.
His main research concerns Medicinal chemistry, Catalysis, Cationic polymerization, Stereochemistry and Phosphine. His Medicinal chemistry study combines topics in areas such as Yield, Markovnikov's rule, Carbene, Aryl and Nucleophile. His Catalysis study is focused on Organic chemistry in general.
His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Ligand, Intermolecular force, Photochemistry, Allene and Combinatorial chemistry. In the field of Stereochemistry, his study on Moiety overlaps with subjects such as Protonation. His work on Hydroalkoxylation as part of his general Intramolecular force study is frequently connected to Counterion, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science.
His primary areas of study are Stereochemistry, Cationic polymerization, Medicinal chemistry, Photochemistry and Phosphine. His Stereochemistry study incorporates themes from Nucleophile, Regioselectivity and Carbene. His work carried out in the field of Cationic polymerization brings together such families of science as Combinatorial chemistry, Cycloisomerization, Enyne and Cycloaddition.
The various areas that Ross A. Widenhoefer examines in his Medicinal chemistry study include Heteroatom and Catalysis. His research in Catalysis intersects with topics in Coordination sphere and Photoswitch. His Phosphine research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Hydroamination, Intramolecular force, Alkene and Enantioselective synthesis.
