Christopher Smith's Biography

Christopher Smith, Lecturer in Organic Chemistry, University of Reading

Dr Smith's research is directed towards new applications of synthetic chemistry where he has a long-standing interest in the development of new transition metal based catalytic methods. The harnessing of base metals such as Fe, Co, Ni or Cu is particularly attractive due to their unusual reactivities and low-cost compared to Pd Rh or Ir.

Fluorine is ubiquitous to modern life ranging from plastics through to drugs and agrochemicals. We continue to investigate new routes and reagents for the incorporation of this important element.

Finally, we have a great deal of experience in continuous flow with applications ranging from drug syntheses and multi-phase reactions, through to nano-particle syntheses. We are looking forward to applying this technology across the disciplines.

The Petasis and Ugi multi-component reactions were joined in series in an automated flow system. In-line HPLC analysis allowed facile optimisation and kinetic analysis of this six-component reaction.
