Professor Kevin Booker-Milburn

Novel Synthetic Methodology & Total Synthesis

Our research is concerned with the generation of new synthetic methods for the construction of complex organic molecules. Methods include the use of photochemistry in organic synthesis and in particluar various cycloaddition reactions of maleimides and derivatives for the construction of complex heterocyclic systems. We are also interested in new Pd(II) catalysed methods that involve C-H activation pathways. Our synthetic targets include biologically active complex polycyclic alkaloids and terpenes.

Professor Booker-Milburn is the Director of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Chemical Synthesis
