Personal profile

Research interests

Our research centres on the development of new catalysts and the catalysis of novel organic reactions.

This research lies at the interface of organic and inorganic chemistry: in our group the development of novel synthetic methodology goes hand in hand with catalyst development and mechanistic investigation.

We are particularly interested in developing new organic reactions that proceed via catalytic C-H activation and producing new catalysts for challenging coupling reactions, with a particular emphasis on the use of iron. Catalysts produced in the group range from organometallic complexes with well defined ligand architectures to nanoparticulate metals.

Professor Bedford is a supervisor in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Chemical Synthesis
