Middle Tennessee State University

Dr. Scott Handy received his Ph.D. in Chemistry from Indiana University in 1996 under the direction of Professor Paul Grieco. Following an NIH postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford University in the labs of Professor Paul Wender, he joined the Chemistry Department at Binghamton University in 1999. In 2006 he moved to Middle Tennessee State University as an Associate Professor and was promoted to Professor in 2011. His research interests are in the areas of cross-coupling reactions (particularly regioselectivity in the couplings of polyhaloheteroaromatics), ionic liquids (as recyclable solvents for transition metal-catalyzed reactions and electrochemistry), and the synthesis and use of aurones to address biological questions.

Ionic liquids, including the newer subcategory of deep eutectic solvents, continue to attract a great deal of research attention in an even increasing number of areas, including traditional areas such as synthesis (organic and materials), electrochemistry, and physical property studies and predictions, as well as less obvious areas such as lubrication and enzymatic transformations. In this volume, recent advances in a number of these different areas are reported and reviewed, thus granting some appreciation for the future that ionic liquid research holds and affording inspiration for those who have not previously considered the application of ionic liquids in their area of interest.
