The Harper Research Group

Mechanistic and Physical Organic Chemistry

Welcome to the website of the Harper group.  Consisting of around 10 people, the group has been pursuing a variety of physical organic chemistry projects in the School of Chemistry at the University of New South Wales for nearly 20 years.  These studies have included those on ionic liquid solvent effects, novel methods to follow reaction outcome, acidity of azolium salts and reactivity of aromatic systems, both planar and non-planar. 

You are encouraged to click on the links above where the Publications page gives a history of our projects whilst the Research Pages indicate where the projects are going now.  The people who actually do the work can be found on the Group Members page, which also includes a history of the group.
