Synthetic Methodology, Catalysis and Green Chemistry - Lukasz Pilarski

Two of the topics investigated by the Pilarski Group: Catalytic C–H activation and aryne capture reactions.

New Methods for Making Organic Molecules

Organic molecules underpin huge areas of modern life, from pharmaceuticals to functional materials and beyond. However, making the molecules society needs can be enormously challenging, inefficient and expensive. New methods in organic synthesis are needed all the time.

Our group invents and develops new methods to build organic molecules in ever faster, cheaper and more environmentally sustainable ways. We use several strategies to achieve this. These include:

  • Catalytic C-H functionalisation
  • Aryne Chemistry
  • Mechanochemistry
