The Group are moving to York from Oxford in January 2020

Welcome to the homepage of Professor Andrew Weller. Research in the Weller group is based upon synthetic organometallic chemistry and catalysis, and in particular the generation and stabilisation of transition metal complexes with a low coordination number. These complexes often show very interesting, and novel structures, that display C–H, B–H and C–C bonding modes (via agostic or sigma interactions). Not only are we interested in the fundamentals of synthesis, bonding and structure of these complexes, but we also have a focus on their use and development in challenging catalytic bond transformations, such as C–H, B–H and C–C activation.


PhD studentship available in the group at the University of York for an Oct 2020 start.
