The research interests of the Dixon group lie mainly in the field of Organic Synthesis. We focus projects at the intersection between the discovery of new reactions and reactivity, the development of this into powerful synthetic methodology and its application to the total synthesis of natural products and molecules of biological significance. Furthermore we aim to make our chemistry accessible to the majority of organic synthesis chemists by making the reactions technically simple to perform, efficient, scaleable, selective and broad in scope. Our research is supported by a number of pharmaceutical companies (Pfizer, AstraZeneca, GlaxoSmithKline, UCB) largely through the CASE scheme and provides an excellent in-depth training in all aspects of organic synthesis. ‘Hot’ project areas where we have enjoyed significant successes include:asymmetric catalysis (organocatalysis and transition metal ion catalysis), reaction cascade catalysis (promoted by single and mutually compatible multiple catalysts), stereoselective methodology development and complex natural product synthesis.
