Established in 2009, the Mattson group has been inspired to design & build small organic molecules that can help to solve problems in complex molecule synthesis. As part of our investigations we have discovered unique catalytic abilities of internal Lewis acid assisted ureas and silanediols.

Unique Reactivity Patterns Catalyzed by Small Organic Molecules

Secondary Metabolite Inspired Drug Discovery

Growing from our roots in catalyst design, we've become interested in applying organic catalysis to the synthesis of naturally occuring bioactive targets. The long-term goals of our research program include advancing unique and efficient methods to synthesize new therapeutic agents.
