Synthesis of macrocycles and medium-sized rings via new ring expansion approaches

Summary. Macrocycles (12+ membered rings) and medium-sized rings (8–11-membered) are cyclic molecules with great potential in many scientific fields and technologies – especially in medicinal chemistry. Read more

Development of chemical probes to monitor enzyme activity involved in muscular dystrophy

Background. Cell surface proteins are modified with diverse carbohydrate structures, or glycans, that play important roles in signalling, cell-pathogen interactions, and communication between cells and their environment. Read more

Photocatalytic and catalytic conversion of carbon dioxide to C-C coupled liquid products

Background. There is an urgent need to develop technologies that reduce the detrimental effects of climate change. Chemistry can contribute significantly by using renewable energy to transform waste CO2 to a useful product or storable liquid. Read more

Catalytic Antibiotic Activation: Tackling Resistance with Artificial Metalloenzymes

Background. Antimicrobial resistance is a global health crisis and new antibacterial strategies are urgently needed, including methods for the targeted activation of antibiotics in pathogenic bacteria. Read more

A Modular Approach to Sustainable Photocatalysts

Background. The use of light to promote chemical reactions underpins a significant number of recent developments in hydrogen generation, CO2 conversion and remarkable new transformations for synthetic chemistry. Read more

Beyond Transaminases: Evolution of native Amine Dehydrogenases for Chiral Primary Amine Synthesis.

Background. Chiral amines are important functional groups that feature in up to 50% of small molecule drugs. The chemistry use to make them is often non-selective, hazardous or toxic and so there is significant pressure to develop green and sustainable methods of chiral amine synthesis. Read more
