Murphy Lab Home
Welcome to the Murphy Lab
We like to play around with hypervalent iodine reagents. Whether it's developing new methods for carbene formation, or for a-carbonyl functionalization, hypervalent iodine is the key. And, should our newly-developed methods lend themselves to the synthesis of a natural product, we will gladly accept the challenge.
Graduate and Undergraduate students:
We are always looking for motivated students to join our team. Those interested in carrying out Chem392 or Chem494 projects, as well as internships, exchanges or co-op placements in our labs are encouraged to contact Dr. Murphy.
Prospective graduate students are invited to contact Dr. Murphy regarding positions available. Offers of a graduate position can only be made upon admission to the graduate program at the University of Waterloo. International students are strongly encouraged to review the admission requirements to assess their eligibility, and to apply early.

Elin and Tess are our new junior coop students.
It's going to be a fun semester of organic chemistry, socially-distanced, of course.

Congratulations Kevin on successfully defending your MSc thesis!
Thank you for all your work these past couple years, and for always making sure the group ran smoothly. Your humour will surely be missed.
Best of luck!
