Research Summary
grey-line-1.jpg

We are interested in the development of useful new synthetic methodology of broad utility for organic synthesis. This particularly involves transition metal catalysis, including asymmetric catalysis. Our interests include: 1) Sustainable chemistry for efficient chemical synthesis; 2) Organofluorine chemistry, particularly fluorination using nucleophilic fluoride salts; 3) Metal catalysed reactions that e.g. increase chemical complexity, especially involving asymmetric catalysis 4) Studying the mechanism of metal-catalysed reactions. 5) Bioimaging using 18F Positron Emission Tomography.
