Welcome to the Berryman Laboratory Website!
To reach our targets we employ preparative and analytical techniques including; organic/organometallic synthesis, crystallography, computations, UV-Vis, fluorescence and NMR. When successful we will transform how molecular design is approached with focus on noncovalent interactions.
