Research

The aim of the Schley research group is the application of organometallic chemistry to unmask latent reactivity in organic substrates. Our goal is to meet the challenge of enabling new oxidative, catalytic transformations of C-H bonds by making use of unconventional activation strategies informed by our understanding of bonding and mechanism in transition metal chemistry.
