Welcome to the Arseniyadis Lab

Welcome to the website of the Arseniyadis groupWe are based in the Joseph Priestley Building at Queen Mary, University of London. The group is principally interested in the development of new synthetic tools to attain high structural and functional complexity. These methods span within the areas of organocatalysis, transition metal catalysis and, more recently, bio-hybrid catalysis. Please use the navigation bar on the top of this page for more information.
