ORGANIC CHEMISTRY RESEARCH GROUP

Welcome

Welcome to Steve Ley’s Organic Chemistry research group webpages. Our laboratories, the Whiffen and Innovative Technology Centre are in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge. Here you’ll find out about our current research in flow chemistry and organic synthesis, as well as a look back at our historical achievements in natural product synthesis. Visitors from academia and industry are welcome to come and work with us and are invited to get in touch.

 

COMING SOON

Our Knowledge Transfer activities and a virtual tour around our Flow Laboratory

NEW STUFF

  • The Internet of Chemical Things – the IoCT which we define as the interconnection and networking of chemical machines, computing devices and all chemical services delivered through the infrastructure of the Internet is coming.
  • Organic Chemistry Science Gateway – enabling researchers to rationalise and predict organic reactions using computational analysis in silico.

“Complex synthesis remains a challenging occupation requiring an exceptional level of experimental skill, extensive knowledge of both mechanistic and molecular reactivity, and a bold, inventive, and creative spirit. It is the combination of these qualities that transforms the synthesis process from one of simple logistics to an art form.” Steve Ley.
