Students in an Organic II lab (13 weeks, 3 hours per week) worked in pairs to isolate the natural products neurolenin B and D, potential treatments for lymphatic filariasis. They proposed reactions to modify these molecules using literature precedent then ran the reactions and analyzed the products. Results were presented in journal article and poster formats.
