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
