MY GROUP WORKS ON SYNTHESIS AND CATALYSIS.
Research in the group covers a range of areas including asymmetric catalysis, new synthetic methodology, a little chemical biology, but mostly sustainable synthesis and catalysis.
ASYMMETRIC TRANSFER HYDROGENATION CATALYSTS.
'ATH101' - see the video here for a demonstration of how to run an asymmetric transfer hydrogenation reaction.
