Personal profile


Dr. Patmore obtained a BSc in Chemistry from the University of Bath in 1999, which was followed by a PhD from the same institution in 2002. His graduate research was supervised by Dr Andrew Weller and involved incorporating weakly coordinating anions into transition metal catalysts to improve their performance. In 2002 he moved to The Ohio State University, USA, for post-doctoral studies with Prof Malcolm Chisholm on electron transfer between metal-metal quadruply bonded compounds. In 2005, he moved back to the UK with a Ramsay Memorial Research Fellowship that was hosted by the University of Sheffield, and in 2006 he was awarded a prestigious Royal Society University Research Fellowship at Sheffield. In 2013 he moved to the University of Huddersfield, and is currently a Royal Society University Research Fellow and a member of the Supramolecular and Structural Chemistry Research Group.
