Transition Metal Chemistry

Within this research thrust, investigations are conducted into the design and synthesis of new transition metals and organometallic compounds with application to catalysis, medicines and materials.

Current research projects include the synthesis of cyclopentadienyl metal compounds which catalyse the oligomerisation and polymerisation of alkenes, and the preparation of new organometallic anti-cancer and antimalarial agents. (Hutton, Smith)
