Paul Elliott is an inorganic chemist whose research interest lie in the photophysical and photochemical properties of transition metal complexes and their applications. He is also Director of the Centre for Functional Materials and is Associate Dean (International) for the School of Applied Sciences.

He originally carried out his undergraduate studies at the University of York (MChem, 2001) before moving to Sheffield to commence doctoral research on the iridium catalysed carbonylation of methanol and associated by-product pathways in the group of Tony Haynes (PhD, 2005). He later returned to York to carry out postdoctoral research on transition metal complex mediated hyperpolarisation transfer in NMR spectroscopy in the group of Simon Duckett.

Research Expertise and Interests

  • Photophysics and photochemistry of transition metal complexes - Much of the research in the Elliott group focuses on the photophysics and photochemistry of metal complexes. This includes the design of new phosphorescent materials with relevance to materials science, but also fundamental excited state properties associated with luminescent emission and photochemical ligand release. 
  • Phototheranostic metal complexes - Research interests also include the development of new metal complexes for biological imaging though confocal microscopy and photoactive complexes of relevance to photodynamic therapy and photoactivated chemotherapy.
