Laboratory address http://www.scripps.edu/chem/finn/index.shtml
M.G. Finn, Ph.D., of Scripps Research Institute, was appointed as Editor-in-Chief of "ACS Combinatorial Science", the former "Journal of Combinatorial Chemistry". The revision calls for its expansion to include biological and materials combinatorial and high throughput studies.
Finn’s research interests include traditional and combinatorial synthesis of biologically active compounds, traditional and combinatorial development of transition metal catalysis, and development of reactions for organic synthesis and materials science. He was part of the team who developed the first click chemistries, including copper-cataluzed triazole click chemistry.
