Dr Susannah Coote


Research Overview

My research focuses broadly on synthetic organic photochemistry, particularly on enantioselective photoreactions, and the synthesis and applications of four-membered heterocycles/carbocycles. I are also interested in developing photochemical reactions driven by solar light (direct and sensitised irradiation), as well as scale-up using flow photochemical approaches.
