Synthesis, Mechanism and Catalysis in Organometallic Chemistry
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. Follow the links above for more information on research in the group, the people that make up the group and our publications.
