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 of molecules of importance in nature, biology, medicine and materials 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.

If you are interested in finding out more about our research, or indeed in joining the group, please do not hesitate to get in touch by emailing Darren (
