  Investigating mechanism, reactivity and catalysis in organic, supramolecular and biological chemistry
  Prof NH Williams
Applications accepted all year round
We are interested in designing and synthesising organic molecules to investigate the basis of catalysis, and to apply these principles to designing our own, artificial catalysts.
  New synthetic routes to heterocycles from acetylides
  Dr MJ Morris
Applications accepted all year round
Heterocyclic compounds are ubiquitous. over 90% of all new drugs contain heterocyclic rings, for example. The development of reactions that can furnish excellent yields of heterocyclic compounds under mild conditions and with maximum efficiency remains a desirable objective of organic chemistry.
  Mechanisms in organometallic chemistry and homogeneous catalysis
  Dr A Haynes
Applications accepted all year round
Homogeneous catalysis by transition metal complexes plays an important role in many significant industrial processes. Understanding the mechanisms underlying these reactions is key to improving catalytic activity and selectivity to enhance overall process efficiency.
  An asymmetric synthesis of atropisomeric functionalised intermediates
  Prof JPA Harrity
Applications accepted all year round
Atropisomers are stereoisomers that occur because of hindered rotation about a single bond, and this leads to two or more conformers that interconvert slowly enough to be isolated as single components.
  Oxidative transformations of alkylboronic esters.
  Dr BM Partridge
Applications accepted all year round
Building on work in the Partridge group, this project will explore new oxidative transformations of alkylboronic esters. This work is suitable for ambitious students with a strong interest organic synthesis, and will involve aspects of catalysis, organoboron chemistry, and asymmetric synthesis..
  Synthesis of saturated nitrogen heterocycles and alkaloids by using organolithiums or dipolar cycloaddition chemistry
  Prof I Coldham
Applications accepted all year round
Our research group focuses on the synthesis of nitrogen-containing heterocyclic compounds, especially with chiral organometallic compounds and dipolar cycloaddition reactions.
  A Pd-catalysed cyclisation strategy to chiral nitrogen heterocycles
  Prof JPA Harrity
Applications accepted all year round
We have recently devised a novel conjunctive reagent that is generated in the presence of a palladium catalyst, and demonstrated that this can be exploited in the synthesis of chiral heterocyclic products.
  Ynone trifluoroborate salts: Versatile reagents for organic synthesis
  Prof JPA Harrity
Applications accepted all year round
We have recently developed a new class of functionality rich intermediates based on ynone trifluoroborate salts. These compounds can be elaborated in multiple ways e.g.
