Research Overview

We are a research group dedicated to advancing the fields of photochemistry, catalysis, and small-molecule libraries. Our research centres on harnessing the synergistic effects of transition metal catalysts in tandem with photochemical reactions. This innovative combination facilitates the synthesis of structurally complex products that are energetically uphill of starting materials. These complex molecules are characterised by their unique three-dimensional structures, endowing them with distinct and selective binding capabilities to various biological targets. Our multidisciplinary approach integrates fundamental principles with state-of-the-art techniques, aiming to shape the future of sustainable and efficient chemical processes.
