Research Group: Inorganic Chemistry

Research Interests

Research in the Ward group is concerned with the catalytic applications of main group and early transition metal organometallic and coordination complexes.  The group has a particular interest in the development of new chiral catalysts based upon the alkaline earth, lanthanide, and early transition metals. Our research involves a significant amount of organic and inorganic syntheses, catalyst testing and optimisation, and mechanistic determination using state-of-the-art  spectroscopic techniques and computational modelling methods.
