个人简介

Darren studied at the University of Oxford where he received his Masters degree in 1993 and his DPhil in 1997 for work supervised by Prof Stephen G. Davies. After postdoctoral work with Professor Steven V. Ley CBE, FRS, he joined the faculty at the Department of Chemistry in Cambridge in 2000. In 2004 he took a Senior Lecturership at The University of Manchester and in 2007 he was promoted to Reader. In 2008 he moved to his current post at the University of Oxford where he is Professor of Chemistry and is the Knowles-Williams Tutorial Fellow in Organic Chemistry at Wadham College. His research program is centered on catalysis and synthetic organic chemistry and focusses on the development of new catalyst-enabled enantioselective synthetic methodologies and their application in synthesis.

研究领域

The Dixon group invents new synthetically powerful methodologies - founded on new catalyst-enabled reactivity - that simplify the synthesis of structurally complex scaffolds, natural products and molecules of biological significance. We enjoy tackling reactions that have no precedent in the literature and strive to make the resulting methodologies attractive to synthesis chemists by developing protocols that are operationally simple, predictable, efficient, selective and scalable. A predominant focus of our group is catalytic stereoselective synthesis and we have published extensively on new, highly enantioselective methods development, total synthesis of complex natural products, new cooperative catalyst designs, and new cascade reactions.
