Synthetic chemistry

Synthetic chemistry at Queen Mary has seen resurgence in recent years with the appointment of a number of new staff. Our main interests lie in: (i) the development of new synthetic and catalytic methodology; (ii) the total synthesis of natural products and their analogues as drug candidates; (iii) molecularly imprinted polymers for application as artificial receptors and catalysts; (iv) ultrafast electron transfer and (v) molecular machines for application to the synthesis of complex molecules and materials. We have excellent laboratories to undertake this research in the state-of-the-art Joseph Priestly Building. We are also supported by outstanding research facilities, including an array of NMR, EPR and ENDOR and mass spectrometers, single crystal X-ray crystallography and a range of analytical facilities commensurate with contemporary synthetic chemistry.
