The compound in question is, as I mentioned, novel, but I believe the proper name would be iodomethyl diazirine. To our knowledge, we don't have anyone on campus with the equipment to do sensitivity tests or the like, so would anyone have guidance on finding appropriate facilities? Additionally, does anyone have experience with researchers doing syntheses with this sort of compound at this sort of scale? If so, what sort of facilities and equipment would you say are necessary to perform the synthesis safely? Additionally, do you know of any faculty whose labs work with diazirines in particular? Thank you!
