Personal profile

Biography

I specialise in metallo-supramolecular chemistry, in particular the synthesis of functional complexes. This work has been recognised through invited lectures, highly cited papers and recently (2007) a cover illustration for Dalton Transactions and has resulted in 54 publications in this and other areas. I have developed the first molecular "reprogrammable" system for potential use in sensors and as metal-specific ligands, and demonstrating metal-metal communication. I received an "internationally leading" rating on my EPSRC First Grant. I collaborate with Prof. D.R. Brown (UoH), Dr A.P. Laws (UoH) and the University School of Health (lithium sensors). I work with the Universities of Bristol (Dr J.C. Jeffery) and Geneva (Dr T. Riis-Johannessen) for structural studies, and Cardiff (Dr S.J.A Pope) on luminescent supramolecular sensors. In light of this success the Department has recently procured as Bruker Apex Duo single-crystal X-ray Diffractometer.
