In a recent featured article in JOC, the Franz Lab has reported the hydrogen bond accepting (HBA) abilities of over 100 molecules quantified using rapid and simple 19F and 31P NMR methods. The article was also selected for cover art, which illustrates two female scientists working collaboratively to develop the method, reflective of the authors -- a diverse group of women, several who are BIPOC and/or first-generation college students. The artwork is a collaboration by Magda Tellez Chavez and Mira Milic, two of the undergraduate co-authors.
