Welcome to the website of the research group of Prof Robert Stockman, an organic chemist specialising in heterocyclic organic chemistry, based at the University of Nottingham.


Our research is directed towards developing concise methods for the synthesis of target molecules of biological and/or medicinal interest. The strategies we use to build these targets combine the use of multi-component coupling, two-directional synthesis, tandem or cascade reactions and rearrangements to deliver stereo and regioselective routes which are as concise and efficient as possible. For more information please see our Research Pages.
