We are interested in all aspects of coordination, organometallic and metallo-supramolecular chemistry with a particular emphasis upon the synthesis of cavity-shaped ligands and their use in organometallic catalysis and green chemistry. Much of our work relies on macrocyclic molecules, such as calixarenes, resorcinarenes, and cyclodextrins. The latter may be used as receptors or serve as platforms for the construction of multifunctional podands.
