The Lipshutz group is focused on research in several areas of synthetic organic chemistry. These include a heavy emphasis on green chemistry, where the goal is to devise new technologies aimed at getting organic solvents out of organic reactions.
More traditional methodologies are also under development, in many cases involving transition metal-catalyzed processes. Total syntheses are ongoing as well, with an accent on axially chiral, naturally occurring and physiologically active biaryls.
