Welcome to the Butler Research Group

Our research covers Mechanistic Bioinorganic Chemistry, Metallobiochemistry and Chemical Biology

We are investigating:

  • Siderophore-mediated iron uptake by bacteria
  • Vanadium & FeHeme haloperoxidases and their biological functions in halogenation and cryptic halogenation processes
  • Catechol adhesion in biology and bioinspired wet adhesive compounds
  • Catalytic deconstruction of biopolymers (such as lignocellulose biomass)
