Research Interests

The Stuart Research Group is an organic chemistry group primarily engaged in the discovery and development of new chemical reactivity for the advancement of synthetic organic chemistry. A particular emphasis is placed on the innovation of novel reagents and catalysts that lead to sustainable synthetic methods and result in the efficient production of a range of useful organic compounds. Hypervalent iodine features prominently in our approaches. The techniques of physical organic chemistry will be utilized to explore the reaction mechanism of conceptually new and unusual chemical reactivity. The reagents and the reactivity developed in our group are envisioned to contribute to the improvement of an array of research areas and industries, including medicinal chemistry, pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and high tech (liquid crystals).
