Daniel P. Becker

Associate Professor of Chemistry, Loyola University Chicago

Disciplines

  • Carbohydrates
  • Heterocyclic Compounds
  • Hormones, Hormone Substitutes, and Hormone Antagonists

Research Interests

  • ‌‌‌‌Our research is focused on the design and synthesis of metalloenzyme inhibitors and also of serine protease and serine hydrolase inhibitors with antibiotic properties. In addition, we are interested in the synthesis and conformational dynamics of supramolecular scaffolds related to cyclotriveratrylene (CTV) with applications in host-guest chemistry. Other active research areas involve synthetic methodology including cascade reactions and metal-catalyzed functionalization reactions.
