by McIntosh, Matt

The field of chem. is very poorly represented in the documentary genre by comparison to other sciences. We have recently completed a short documentary entitled "Total Synthesis - Mols. and Medicine." The film describes the connection between the field of natural product total synthesis and medicine. It is directed toward non-specialists, high school age and older. We will describe some of the details of the film and show excerpts. More information can be found at
