A grant from the EPSRC has been awarded to Prof. Stuart Macgregor in collaboration with Prof. Mike Whittlesey at the University of Bath. The grant is for £297k for 3 years and is titled "Catalytic Functionalisation of Aromatic Fluorocarbons". The project is based on the observation of an usual regioselectivity in a hydrodefluorination reaction and aims to design new catalysts for the selective defluorination of flurooaromatics.
