Our research efforts are directed toward developing new classes of ancillary ligands/transition metal complexes that exhibit interesting and unusual reactivity, with the goal of incorporating such reactivity into useful substrate transformations.

Our recent publication "Challenging Nickel-Catalyzed Amine Arylations Enabled by Tailored Ancillary Ligand Design" in Nature Communications is now available on-line:
