Research in the CCHF:

The CCHF brings together leading scientists from across a wide range of the chemical sciences in a collaborative effort to develop C–H Funcationalization into a predictable, sustainable and streamlining technology for the commercial construction of organic molecules.

The development of a tool-box of catalysts and transformations capable of selectively converting C–H bonds into C–C, C–N, C–O or C–Halogen bonds will fundamentally change the way molecules are put together, streamlining synthetic strategies in a sustainable fashion.

While CCHF researchers operate in a collaborative and synergistic model six major research themes have been established to help guide and foster the collaborative projects.
