The Neidig group is a physical-inorganic chemistry and catalysis research group at the University of Oxford. Our research focuses on non-precious metal catalysis in organic chemistry, with the long-term goal of elevating our understanding of iron- and cobalt-catalyzed organic transformations to the level currently available for palladium catalysis. Moreover, we are focused on Detailed insight into the electronic structure and bonding in heavy element chemistry remains poorly developed despite the critical role of actinide and lanthanide compounds in environmental, non-proliferation and energy issues.
