Principal Research Interests

The Findlater laboratory seeks to encompass a broad range of research areas. These span such disparate topics as C-H bond activation, Lewis acid catalysis, materials applications and the chemistry of the lanthanide elements. These projects are all grounded in the rational design and preparation of catalysts capable of converting low value substrates into important (higher value / functionalized) products via a range of synthetic techniques (organic, inorganic and organometallic alike).
