Our research group aims to discover, develop and understand new transition metal-catalyzed reactions. The discovery of fundamentally new transition metal chemistry and its development into practical, catalytic synthetic methods is a theme of our research.
Hundreds of Hartwig Group alumni have found successful careers in
academia, industry, and the government.
