Welcome to the website of the Weix group.

Our labs are located on the 4th floor of Hutchison Hall at the beautiful University of Rochester. Research in the group is centered upon catalysis, broadly defined. This includes the discovery of new reactivity, design of new multimeric catalysts, and the development of these ideas into useful synthetic methods.
