Dr Andrew Jupp
Assistant Professor Dr Andrew Jupp

Dr Jupp received the award for investigating the mechanisms that underpin a sustainable catalyst system called frustrated Lewis pairs (FLPs), in particular the pre-association of the acid and base components in an encounter complex. The understanding from this work will enable the design of new and more efficient main-group catalysts.

Based in the School of Chemistry, Andrew is an Assistant Professor and leads the Jupp Research Group, a growing group of talented researchers whose research interests lie at the interface of inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry and sustainability.
