The Sherburn Group are a Synthetic Organic Chemistry research
group based at the Research
School of Chemistry, Australian
National University, in Canberra,
We develop new methods to achieve efficient chemical synthesis through the development of new domino sequences, cycloaddition reactions, radical reactions, metal-catalysed C-C bond formation, and new methods for stereoselective synthesis. We are interested in applications of these new methods in the total synthesis of bioactive natural products of potential medicinal importance, in hydrocarbon structures of fundamental importance, and in self-assembly and in host-guest chemistry.
