About Us

The Bhawal Lab was recently established in September 2021 in the School of Chemistry at the University of Edinburgh. Our group has a broad interest in catalysis as an enabling tool for the construction of organic molecules. We have research programmes on establishing new paradigms in site-selective functionalisation and unlocking novel chemical reactivity with earth-abundant metal catalysts. An important aim of our work is to apply our chemistry to the modification of complex molecules as a strategy to expedite the discovery of new pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and other bioactive molecules.
