Synthetic organic methodology and reagent development

Our ability to manipulate molecules and probe new areas of chemical space is intrinsically linked to the repertoire of chemical reagents and methodologies we have at our disposal. We are interested in the development of new strategies for the preparation of structurally complex and biologically relevant targets, particularly natural products. Inspired by the efficiency of nature, we hope to exploit innate chemical reactivity to minimize the number of synthetic steps required to reach a target molecule. The Malins lab will focus specifically on transformations which proceed through radical intermediates.
