Projects per year
Based in the Catalysis and Synthesis Section, I have been an academic within the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry at Strathclyde since 2006.
My main area of research centres on the structure and reactivity of organometallic alkali metal reagents as well as their interaction with organomagnesium compounds. The chemistry which can be achieved by combining the two types of metal reagents is often uprecedented and can be utilised in organic synthesis to prepare otherwise unobtainable compounds, an important aspect for the pharmaceutical and agrochemical industries.
In addition, my teaching includes topics such as structure and bonding and tranisition metal chemistry.
