The McErlean Research Group works to develop novel reactions and apply known reactions in novel ways, to reduce the complexity inherent in the synthesis of natural products, agrichemicals, and pharmaceuticals. Ultimately, we aim to build important target molecules in an open flask, at ambient temperature, using non-speciality equipment and economical chemicals.
To design and develop operationally simple processes for synthesis, we concentrate on catalytic methods. Explore our research at the link below:
