Dr. Ley is a world-renowned organic chemist. He founded the Ley Group, which has published extensively on the synthesis of natural products and has synthesized more than 130 target compounds.

He has pioneered the use of immobilized reagents in multi-step organic synthesis to make compounds in a cleaner and more effective way. This work now incorporates flow chemistry for multistep organic synthesis applications. He has devised many practical and useful protecting groups using acetal chemistry. He has done significant work in the area of organic catalysis and was one of the inventors of tetrapropylammonium perruthenate (TPAP), a catalytic oxidant that is now used worldwide and cited extensively.

Dr. Ley has published 698 papers to date. His recent awards include the Paracelsus Prize, the Heinrich Wieland Prize, the Tetrahedron Prize, the Perkin Prize for Organic Chemistry, the High Throughput Drug Discovery Methodologies Award, the Prous Institute-Overton and Meyer Award for New Technologies in Drug Discovery and the Hans Heroff Inhoffen Medal. In 1990 he was elected to the Royal Society (London) and was President of The Royal Society of Chemistry from 2000-2002.
