We are interested in developing new synthetic methodologies for organic synthesis based on the merger of transition metal hydride catalysis and photochemistry.
This includes the discovery of new light-switchable catalytic reactions and also the development of sustainable, atom-economical bond-forming processes from simple, feedstock chemicals.
Our aim is to innovate methods that offer orthogonal selectivity, and to develop entirely new reactions that enable more efficient routes to building new C-C bonds with applications in new settings.
Outstanding facilities are available including those of the Schoenebeck Group (GCMS, EPR, etc.).
