About Mr. Gentile

I have had 25 years of experience in organic synthesis. My experience is mainly in Medicinal Chemistry, where my work has been in the preparation and isolation of new drug entities, along with scale-up work. For compound purity we had the use of HPLC and GC instrumentation. This equipment was also used in monitor rates of reaction.

In my free time I enjoy traveling abroad and cruising around Rochester my orange Mustang. My wife and I live in Scottsville, NY along with our 2 children
