Dr Matthew Jones

Profile

Research activities and interests within the group focus on several different aspects of the synthesis of homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts for sustainable chemical transformations and green chemistry.

Our work involves a major synthetic component, most of which is carried out using inert atmosphere techniques. Work will utilise solution-state NMR (within the department) and solid-state NMR (in collaboration with the EPSRC service and other UK based collaborators), mass spectrometry, electron microscopy and X-ray crystallography to probe the structure of the homogeneous catalysts.

Research Interests:

  • Asymmetric Heterogeneous Catalysts
  • Sustainable Chemistry
