Research

Our research interests concern the fields of organic synthesis, organometallic chemistry, and asymmetric catalysis.

Our goals are: 

  • Design of new catalytic processes where C-C or C-X bonds are formed with an emphasis on the stereo- and enantioselectivity.
  • Synthesis of inexpensive and environmentally friendly metal complexes. 
  • Heterogeneous catalysis using metal-organic frameworks (www.exselent.su.se). 
  • Mechanistic studies.
  • Application of the methodology to the total synthesis of biologically active compounds.
