Research

Our research focusses on organic chemistry, the science that explores all aspects of organic compounds such as molecular structure, composition, the synthesis and properties of carbon-containing compounds and the methods and strategies that we use to achieve this.

We are committed to promoting excellence in postgraduate research through rigorous skills training and the provision of excellent laboratory facilities. We engender ambition and adventure to help our group members go on to become future pioneers and leaders in their own right.

The heart of our research interests lies in the discovery and development of new chemical methodologies, in the broadest sense. A main focus for us is tackling the challenges facing chemical manufacturing in the future and addressing strategic needs for more sustainable processes in chemical synthesis.
