Organic Research- Maillard Reaction

Students in Dr. Kroll's Organic Chemistry lab are back to their research! Jenn Dolezal and Dan Clemens are doing their research on the Maillard reaction which involves the reaction of an amino acid and a sugar to give certain foods their desired taste and smell. By using TLC's of known and unknown products and by varying time and temperature, this group will be observing how these effects will change the products it will yield!
