Welcome to the website for the Collins Group, a synthetic chemistry research group led by Dr Beatrice Collins based in the School of Chemistry at the University of Bristol. Our research is focused on the design and development of autonomously operating molecular motors. Our approach involves the use of modern synthetic methodologies—transition metal catalysis, photochemistry, enzymatic biocatalysis—to tackle the challenges posed by the development of these out-of-equilibrium functional molecular systems.
To learn more about our research programme and who we are, please explore the website. For more information you can contact Beatrice directly by email.
