Doyle Group, March 2014

Welcome to the Doyle group website! Research in our lab takes place at the interface between the fields of organic synthesis, organometallic catalysis, and physical organic chemistry. We are involved in designing synthetic strategies that enable efficient and selective preparation of complex molecules and biologically privileged structural motifs. To achieve these goals, we harness the activity of inexpensive and abundant transition metal catalysts to achieve novel bond-forming processes. Projects in the group are designed to provide students with expertise in reaction discovery and development, while exposing them to problems in complex target synthesis and mechanistic analysis.
