Daniel Leng


I am a PhD student at the University of Warwick on the industrial biotechnology theme of the MIBTP, working in the lab of Dr Manuela Tosin in the department of Chemistry on the generation of 'unnatural' products through the use of novel polyketide synthons.

I completed an undergradate masters degree at the University of Warwick in Chemistry, completing a 4th year research project on the synthesis of α,α-difluoromethyl ketones under Dr Graham Pattison. This work has recently been published in Organic and Biomolecular Chemistry as One-pot synthesis of difluoromethyl ketones by a difluorination/fragmentation process.
