Research Area (Doctoral)
The development of continuous flow toolkits for widely utilised reactions that can be applied to a diverse range of starting materials is critical for the development of flow-based process routes. Valerie’s research focuses on the development, functionalisation and utilisation of solid-supported reagents. Research highlights involve the development of monolithic supports for performing industrially important process which including Wittig, Suzuki and Ozonolysis reactions.
