Our research can be assigned to two main fields: Organic Electrochemistry and the chemistry ofReactive Intermediates. We are focused upon the development, use, and understanding of reactions and reactive intermediates – and their application to the synthesis of bioactive and other structurally interesting materials. We emphasize mechanistic aspects because we believe in the fundamental importance of them in gaining an understanding of the (electro)chemistry and the intermediates we investigate. Our efforts allow the exploration and useful conversion of a variety of interesting and reactive intermediates, including diradicals - especially those related to trimethylenemethane, as well as radical anions and radical cations - the latter being generated using a variety of electrochemical techniques.
