Trifluoromethylation using Copper-based Reagents and Catalysts (co-funded by Syngenta)

The late-stage incorporation of fluorine into drug or agrochemical targets is highly desirable due to the unique pharmacological properties conferred by fluorine such as enhanced lipophilicity, bioavailability, and metabolic stability. Read more

Dual Catalytic C–H Alkylation: An automated approach to reaction discovery (co-funded by AstraZeneca)

This research will develop the palladium-catalysed alkylation of C–H bonds using alcohols as the alkylating reagent. C–H functionalisation promises significant advantages in the construction of complex molecules avoiding pre-functionalisation. Read more

Where does all the carbon go? Determining the carbon pool turnover rates in semi-arid biomes of Australia.

Aims. The semi-arid ecosystems of Australia have been recognised a global carbon sink anomaly, accounting for almost 60% of global carbon uptake during consecutive seasons of high rainfall arising from La Niña events. Read more

Greener solvents for industrial polymers

Introduction. A number of industrially relevant polymers such as polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC) are particularly difficult to recycle, partly because of the solvents and conditions needed to dissolve them. Read more

Photocatalytic solar energy conversion

There is a clear need to develop processes that minimise the consumption of limited energy resources and reduce waste detrimental to the environment. Read more

Towards Understanding of the Photodegradation Pathways in Lignins

Lignins are amongst the most abundant biopolymers on Earth, and are key components of the cell walls of many vascular plants. However, our fundamental knowledge of the photochemistry of the molecular building blocks that make up lignins (i.e. 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

Atmospheric chemistry of new green solvents

Background. Solvents make up the bulk of waste from the chemical industry yet little attention is paid to the environmental impact of these volatile organic compounds (VOC) once released to the atmosphere {1-2}. Read more

Does the Oxidation of Organic Material on Atmospheric Mineral Aerosol Change the Solar Radiative Forcing of Mineral Aerosol?

The atmosphere of the Earth is an oxidizing medium and effectively acts as a low temperature, dilute fuel, combustion system, oxidizing complex compounds and returning them to the surface of the Earth via cloud water and dry deposition. Read more
