Welcome to Stuart L, a new contributor to the cascade

We’re delighted to welcome a new contributor to the Chemistry Cascade – Stuart Leckie.

Stuart is a synthetic organic chemist whose main interest is in catalytic asymmetric transformations, although currently he has been side-tracked by a desire to save the planet and is working on the development of sustainable cross-coupling reactions.

He completed a Ph.D. looking at novel applications of NHCs and isothioureas as Lewis base organocatalysts and he is also interested in all things involving samarium diiodide, especially it’s application in total synthesis.
