Research Summary

I work on synthesis and catalysis.

There is much more information, including teaching materials, publications and who's who, on my group website, so please go there now.

Synthetic chemistry and asymmetric catalysis; Enantioselective ketone reduction using transfer hydrogenation and asymmetric carbon-carbon bond forming reactions using homochiral transition metal catalysts; Total and partial synthesis of natural products; Development of catalysts for hydrogen generation; Development of supported reagents for synthesis. Our group use a wide range of structural and analytical techniques such as infra-red, NMR, mass spectrometry, X-ray diffraction and atomic absorption spectroscopy.
