The Rizzacasa Group
The group’s overarching goal is the total synthesis of complex natural products. These natural products may originate from a variety of sources or exhibit a variety of biological activity, however what draws them to us is their structural complexity, and the greater the complexity, the better!
Through our endeavours we hope to develop original synthetic routes, confirm biosynthetic origin and synthesise meaningful quantities to enable rigorous biological studies. Over the past 20 years our group has had success in reaching these goals and examples can be seen in our publications page.
Our current research projects can be viewed, following the links below.
