Jon Tunge

Jon A. Tunge received a B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Idaho where he worked with Prof. Ray von Wandruszka on the development of fluorescent probes for high explosives.  From 1995-2000 he worked on developing asymmetric transformations of organozirconocenes under the direction of Prof. Jack R. Norton.  After receiving his Ph.D. from Columbia University in 2000, he moved to the University of Wisconsin-Madison to study the mechanisms of organometallic transformations under the guidance of Prof. Charles P. Casey.  In the fall of 2002 Dr. Tunge joined the faculty at the University of Kansas , where he has established a research program combining the topics of catalytic reaction development, combinatorial chemistry, and green synthetic chemistry.  He is the recipient of an NSF-CAREER Award (2005) and recently received a W. T.  Kemper Fellowship for Teaching Excellence.
