Spencer Lab


Research interests of the Spencer group



Our interests include:

-Organic Synthetic Methodology Towards Bioactive Molecules, palladium catalysis.

-Library Design (Ro3 fragments, privileged scaffolds)

-C-H activation, atom economical chemistry and rapid synthesis (microwave/flow chemistries)

-Multifunctional boronic acids amenable to Suzuki Miyaura and other chemistries e.g. metathesis, SNAr, SN2 substitutions

-Microwave-mediated chemistry (coupling reactions, reductions, cyclisations)

-Palladacycle design, study and reactivity

-Bioinorganic chemistry
