Charge-Transfer Complexes in Organic Synthesis

The James Group is interested in developing new synthetic methods that can solve long-standing challenges in synthesis through the careful design and activation of organic charge-transfer complexes.

A charge-transfer complex is an association formed between an electron-rich donor molecule and a comparatively electron-deficient acceptor molecule, which is stabilised by the partial transfer/redistribution of electrons. Charge-transfer complexes enable radical chains to be initiated under mild and selective conditions.
