Fletcher Research Group

Synthetic chemistry is unique amongst the sciences as it allows the construction of new molecular materials. We are developing catalytic methods for the asymmetric construction of carbon-carbon bonds. We also synthesize and study new materials to help us understand important chemical, physical and biological phenomena. 

We operate out of the Chemistry Research Laboratory.
