The research of the Hammond Group is focused on the understanding of novel interactions between organic and organometallic compounds from the perspective of physical organic chemistry. The ultimate goal of enabling user-friendly synthesis of organic compounds is investigating innovative methods for the facile construction of organofluorine compounds, developing environmentally friendly catalysts, and adding promoters or additives for the construction of organic molecules. The group's international outreach targets natural products from Peruvian medicinal plants with activities against mental diseases, cancer and tropical infections.
