Applications of Transition Metal-Mediated Chemistry


We are an interdisciplinary research group that aims to develop solutions to challenges ranging from synthesis focused catalysis to the detection of small molecules in biological systems. To accomplish these goals we use mechanistic insight into organotransition metal chemistry.
