Dr Shepherd Siangwata’s research interests lie in organometallic synthesis, coordination chemistry, green chemistry and homogeneous catalysis. His current project with Associate Professor Gareth Owen is aimed at novel synthetic strategies for the sustainable use of precious metals on activation of carbon dioxide.
Shepherd holds a PhD in Chemistry from the University of Cape Town, South Africa. His PhD thesis focused on Platinum Group Metals through the preparation of recoverable and reusable novel mono- and multinuclear dendritic catalyst precursors for application in the hydroformylation reaction. Shepherd also carried out postdoctoral research at the University of Cape Town, focusing on the development of a new class of ruthenium-based bimetallic complexes with potential anti-proliferative activity.
