Welcome to the DOH group webpage


The O'Hare group is an Inorganic Chemistry research group based in the University of Oxford.

The O'Hare group have a wide range of research interests spanning organometallic and solid-state chemistry. We're particularly interested in the synthesis of novel compounds. The titles of some currently active projects are given below and further information can be found in the Research Areas section.

In-Situ Diffraction Studies

Activation of small molecules using Frustrated Lewis Pairs

The synthesis and characterisation of novel organometallic compounds

Application of Layered Double Hydroxides
