Research Description

The principal emphasis of Professor Comins’ research program is the development of new synthetic methodologies and strategies for the asymmetric synthesis of alkaloids, natural products and biologically active compounds. He is particularly interested in the design of new synthetic reactions, especially practical, high-yield methods for the synthesis of complex organic molecules with specific stereochemistry. Several strategies based on heterocyclic and organometallic chemistry are under investigation.
