Research in the Wendlandt Group focuses on the development of selective, catalytic reactions using the tools of organic/organometallic synthesis and physical organic chemistry. Mechanistic study plays a central role in the development of these new transformations. Projects in our group involve:

  • design of new catalysts and catalytic transformations
  • identification of important applications for selective catalytic processes
  • elucidation of new mechanistic principles to expand powerful existing catalytic reaction manifolds

Researchers in our group can expect to gain expertise in synthetic organic chemistry, reaction kinetics and mechanistic study.
