Portrait of Natalia Blank

Natalia Blank earned her Ph.D. in organometallic/organic chemistry from Dartmouth College, where she completed the dissertation Pd-Catalyzed Asymmetric Phosphination. Scope and Mechanism of the Enantioselective Synthesis of P-stereogenic Phosphines.

Her undergraduate work was completed at Nizhegorod State University, Nizhniy Novgorod, Russia. Prof. Blank teaches organic chemistry courses for students majoring in chemistry, biochemistry, biology, and those completing pre-med requirements.

Her research and teaching interests include metal-catalyzed asymmetric reactions, especially synthesis of various phosphines and imines. Recently Prof. Blank became interested in issues of green chemistry and sustainability as applied to chemical synthesis. Her Organic Chemistry II laboratory has been redesigned to introduce students to the 12 green chemistry principles, sustainable synthetic practices, and unconventional laboratory techniques.

Blank served as a founding director of Norwich University’s Honors Program (2011-2015). She currently serves as a chair of the College of Science and Mathematics Curriculum Committee. Prof. Blank is dedicated to the ideals of liberal arts and sciences education and the pursuit of academic excellence.
