Aluminium, Boron, Phosphorus, Silicon.

The Cowley group use synthetic chemistry to create and understand new main-group compounds for catalysis and small molecule activation.

We’re a research group based in the School of Chemistry at the University of Edinburgh who prepare and study new compounds of the abundant p-block elements. We work to discover new fundamental chemistry that we use to advance catalysis and materials chemistry.

Position available!

We’re looking to recruit a postdoctoral researcher to work on Al(I) chemistry for 24 months. Check out the full details here!
