Weaver research 3.12.16

The Weaver group attempts to ask fundamentally interesting questions, understanding of which allows us to push the boundaries of what is possible.  We are particularly interested in developing strategies that allow the catalytic generation of reactive interemediates as well as the behavior of these transient species.  What we have learned has implications to several areas of broad interest including cross-coupling reactions, C-F functionalization chemistry, and even performing catalysis in a endergonic direction i.e. uphill catalysis.  Out of our fundamental interest has grown a number of other interests which we pursue as a natural consequence of where the chemistry leads us.
