Thomas Osberger (White group) and Andy Thomas (Denmark group) are finalists for the 2017 Reaxys PhD Prize.
- Chemists led by University of Illinois professor M. Christina White and graduate student Thomas Osberger found that two small-molecule iron catalysts can oxidize chiral amino acids and peptides to an array of unnatural forms, giving researchers more options for developing drug candidates.
- Christina White's Group Developed a New Catalyst Based on the Metal Manganese that is Both Highly Reactive and Highly Selective
