The Dixon Group

Research in the Dixon lab is centred on the development of new, broadly useful, synthetic methodologies and their application to the synthesis molecules of importance in nature, biology, medicine and material science. We design and deploy new multifunctional cooperative catalysts and catalytic systems to uncover new reactivity and our interests span curiosity driven to target driven research themes.
