The NSF Center for Selective C-H Functionalization leads a major paradigm shift in organic chemistry, making organic synthesis faster, simpler and greener and building new models for teaching and research. Based at Emory University, the center brings together 24 leading chemists from 14 universities across the country. "The center is at the forefront of a major paradigm shift in organic chemistry," says Huw Davies, professor of chemistry at Emory and the director of the center. "We're not just driving new methods of synthesis, we’re building new models for teaching and research." Last year the National Science Foundation awarded $20 million to Emory for the center.
