About Gregory W. O'Neil

Our group specializes in the enantioselective synthesis of biologically and environmentally important natural products. Our research may be divided into two broad categories: (1) the synthesis of structurally interesting and biologically/environmentally compelling small molecule natural products and (2) the development of new synthetic methods with applications in natural product synthesis.
