Molecule-of-the-Semester Challenge (2018-SS)


Three teams were competing to propose a total synthesis of acosmine.

The first Molecule-of-the-Semester challenge since our group moved to Vienna. This semester's target molecule was the alkaloid acosmine. Great seminar with great atmosphere and inspiring discussions! Congratulations to Captain Yong Chen and his team for the victory with a symmetry based approach!

The price for the winning team: A 2009 Port wine.
