Research overview

My major interests are in the synthesis and study of main group sulfur, selenium and phosphorus heterocycles. Sulfur nitrogen (NS) and phosphorus sulfur/selenium (PS/Se) compounds are under investigation with particular interest in the preparation of materials with interesting electrical properties and new organic reagents.Structural investigations are carried out using X-ray crystallography, infrared/Raman and multielement nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). Currently my work is particularly concerned with the preparation of compounds with sterically imposed heavy atom interactions an d in developing new chemistry associated with Woollins Reagent.
