Another year, another paper

Filed under: Chemistry — sankirnam @ 10:33 pm

Earlier this year, another one of my papers was published. This was based on research I did during my PhD, and this was the first major independent scientific research project I worked on. This project introduced me to the fascinating topic of superelectrophilic activation, which I talked about in detail in a previous post. The journal, Topics in Catalysis, isn’t really considered very hot (impact factor 2.4), but my paper was part of a special issue dedicated to Prof. George Olah, who passed away last year.

This now brings my total publication count to seven, which is respectable for a PhD in organic chemistry these days. I’m now thinking of how I can continue to build on that; however, now that I’m no longer in a lab, the only way I can think of to get published is by writing review articles (e.g. in Chemical Reviews or other journals). Unfortunately, without access to SciFinder, searching the literature is difficult.
