The relationship between the structure of molecules and their function is of interest across many areas of chemical research—for example, for the synthesis of new pharmaceutical drugs and for the development of new catalysts, among other applications. In our current research we are interested in the synthesis and antioxidant properties of diaryl tellurides, and how these properties relate to the chemical structure of the molecules. (Diaryl tellurides have two benzene-like groups connected by a tellurium atom). We have recently developed an improved synthetic route to amino-substituted diaryl tellurides, which are known to have very good antioxidant and catalytic properties, and are exploring its generality as we make novel compounds. We will use several methods to evaluate the antioxidant properties of the compounds that we prepare.Margaret E. Logan
