Expertise

Natural products isolated from bacteria, fungi and plants from both marine and terrestrial environments are a rich source of compounds of medicinal and agrochemical importance. We have published >100 papers which centre upon:- ? Structure elucidation and total synthesis of natural products ? Design and synthesis of probes to elucidate biosynthetic pathways and enzyme mechanisms ? Enantioselective synthesis of amino acids and heterocycles ? Isotopic labelling, biotransformations and reaction mechanisms
