Andrew Weller is a Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of York. Prior to this he was Professor of Chemistry at the University of Oxford and a fellow of Magdalen College. Research in the Weller group is based upon synthetic organometallic chemistry, and in particular the generation and stabilisation of transition metal complexes with a low coordination number. Through this we are interested in topics related to catalysis, structure and bonding and energy, and in particular complexes that display C-H, B-H and C-C bonding modes (via agostic and sigma interactions) and activation. We also have interest in the self-assembly of metal fragments to form novel clusters that show promise as models for hydrogen on metal surfaces, hydrogen storage devices and models for nanoparticles.
Our Research Group is hosted here, with our research interests and our publications.
