PhD projects

The research conducted by Paul Davies and his group involves the design, development and application of novel synthetic transformations and strategies that allow them to prepare complex molecules more efficiently with less effort, cost and waste, and access unique chemical entities for application in synthesis and functional molecular design.

The group's research projects cover the following areas:

Reaction development
Transition-metal catalysis (using Au, Ag, Pt, Cu, Rh and Pd)
Synthesis of biologically relevant products
Mechanistic studies
Organic synthesis
Transition-metal catalysis
Organometallic chemistry
