Our Research Mission

Our research program may be divided into five broad areas. The synthesis of new polymers and materials is a core strength that enables us to address problems at a number of important frontiers. The diversity of research projects within the group provides a stimulating learning environment that imparts students with an understanding of the central role of synthetic chemistry in contemporary science.
