Organic and Biomolecular Chemistry

The study of organic synthesis allows chemists to build complex molecules from simple and readily available precursors. Chemistry researchers at UNE are developing new ways to carry out reactions and synthesise challenging molecules with complex behaviour and potentially valuable biomedical applications.

UNE has expertise specialising in carbohydrate synthesis, organometallic synthesis, green asymmetric synthesis targeted at chiral pharmaceuticals, and surfactant and supramolecular self-assembly processes.
