DSC_0838.jpgOur primary research interests lie in the areas of organic synthesis and reaction methodology. The development of new carbon-carbon bond-forming reactions with broad applicability to the synthesis of biologically significant targets will be the primary focus of our research group. We are enjoying and exploring something new in organic and organometallic chemistry!
