Experimental and Theoretical Organic Synthesis
The group offers cutting-edge education in organic chemistry. We are applying the latest tools in modern inclusive pedagogy and research-based education strategies to provide our students with world-leading skills in both theoretical and practical organic chemistry.
The ETOS group operates at the interface between experimental and theoretical organic synthesis. Our work is largely driven by inspiration drawn from polycylic alkaloid natural products, which are used as platforms for synthetic strategy design, development of new synthetic methods, and the study of mechanistically intriguing processes.
We also support the Department of Chemistry and Materials Science by providing in-house synthesis services for making non-commercially available custom molecules.
