A mechanism-led approach to reaction prediction

Background. The ab initio prediction of chemical behaviour has long been a holy grail for synthetic chemists as it will allow the targeting of the most efficient pathways to prepare high value commodity compounds. Read more

Total Synthesis of (–)-Quinine

Total Synthesis of (–)-Quinine. Supervisor. Peter O’Brien. Background. (–)-Quinine is one of the most famous molecules in organic chemistry and is an important compound from a medicinal perspective (anti-malarial) and as a chiral catalyst. Read more

Photolysis reaction mechanisms with emerging and new technologies

Background. Photochemistry controls a vast array of the natural and man-made processes known to science. photosynthesis, atmospheric and combustion chemistry, plasma technology, solar energy. Read more

Luminescent Liquid Crystals

Background. Organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) represent a highly competitive, flat-panel display technology that is increasingly penetrating the market once dominated by liquid crystal displays. Read more

In silico glycosylation of AlphaFold protein structural models.

Background. The recent release of the AlphaFold Protein Structure Database by DeepMind and EMBL-EBI has made available to the scientific community highly accurate structural predictions for 20,000 human proteins and those from 20 other biologically relevant organisms. Read more

Impacts of cooking on indoor air chemistry

In developed countries, it has been estimated that (pre-Covid) we spend more than 90% of our time indoors, whether at home, in the workplace or commuting between the two. Read more

Engineering Enzymes for Organic Synthesis

Engineering Enzymes for Organic Synthesis. Professor Gideon Grogan, Department of Chemistry, University of York. Background. Our research group is interested in the identification and characterisation of enzymes and their application to organic synthesis. Read more

Catalytic Asymmetric ‘Clip-Cycle’ Reactions: Synthesis of Heterocycles Important in Drug Discovery

Cyclic ethers and amines are ubiquitous in biologically active natural and non-natural products. However, despite this prevalence and importance, there is no strategy for their asymmetric synthesis which is independent of heteroatom and/or ring size. Read more
