N2 on yellow liquid
Our research interests focus on the development of new homogeneous catalysts. We use skills in synthetic main group chemistry to construct new ligands, then apply synthetic organometallic chemistry to form new transition metal catalysts for testing in many reactions.

The major theme for our current research is Unconventional main group ligands

Phosphinophosphinine ligands in catalysis and small molecule activation

Applying tethered ligands to C-H activation

f-Block chemistry
We are currently exploring the formation and reactivity of bimetallic f-block compounds.
