Dr David Carbery

Profile

Our research themes are primarily organic synthesis in nature, however, they focus on a wide range of specific problems. Some of the particular areas are discussed below and cover topics such as helicity, organocatalysis, asymmetric synthesis, target orientated synthesis and development of new methodologies.

Research Interests

  • New Ireland-Claisen Chemistry 
  • Divinyl Ketones 
  • Metal-Free Hydrogenation
