A Pd-catalysed cyclisation strategy to chiral nitrogen heterocycles

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. Read more

An asymmetric synthesis of atropisomeric functionalised intermediates

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. Read more

Novel synthesis & characterisation methods for metal-organic nanosheets

Nanomaterials are set to revolutionise every aspect of our lives from electronics to medicine. The remarkable properties shown by graphene have led to the development of a wide variety of other two-dimensional materials. Read more

Oxidative transformations of alkylboronic esters.

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.. Read more

Ynone trifluoroborate salts: Versatile reagents for organic synthesis

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. Read more

The development of therapeutic peptides for cancer.

Colorectal cancer is the second most common cancer in women and the third in men. There were 1.8 million new diagnoses in 2018. There is a huge demand to improve conventional therapies and to discover novel ones. Read more
