Research summary

Asymmetric Synthetic Methods

We look at novel ways to prepare single enantiomers. Although the compounds themselves may be useful it is usually the tools we develop to make them that are more important. These tools have intriguing properties about them because of the symmetry they employ. Although the investigation and subsequent application of some symmetry elements has been thorough and successful, the study of properties of molecules with higher symmetry has had little attention. Our programme of research concerned with the investigation of the more exotic symmetry elements and chirality.

Paul completed his degree in Natural Sciences at Queens' College, Cambridge University in 1990. He then spent a year as a schoolteacher at Bishop Wordsworth's School in Salisbury before moving back to Cambridge where he obtained his PhD with Dr Stuart Warren in 1994.

After one year in Uppsala in Sweden on a Royal Society Postdoctoral Fellowship, he took up his current post at the School of Chemistry, University of Bristol in 1996. As well as running a research group Paul regularly gives Continuing Professional Development courses on organic synthesis to industrial chemists. To date he has given more ...
