Welcome to the homepages of Andrew Weller. Research in the group is based upon synthetic organometallic chemistry, and in particular the generation and stabilisation of transition metal complexes with a low coordination number. Through this we are interested in topics related to catalysis, structure and bonding and energy, and in particular complexes that display C-H, B-H and C-C bonding modes (via agostic and sigma interactions) and activation. We also have interest in the self-assembly of metal fragments to form novel clusters that show promise as models for hydrogen on metal surfaces and new hydrogen storage devices. Follow the links above for more information on research in the group and its publications.
