Our collaborators are spread all over the globe and inject a lot of creativity and fun into our joint research programmes.
The Archibald Group
In early 2016 we published for the first time with the Archibald group at the University of Hull. This collaboration focused on making organelle-specific, highly fluorescent imaging agents.
The Benny Group
Prof Paul Benny’s group at Washington State University is one of our ‘go-to’ experts on technetium chemistry and we work together on tackling problems related to developing fluorescent group 7 SPECT biological imaging probes, in conjunction with Sofia Pascu at the University of Bath (below).
The Fey Group
Dr Fey’s contributions on developing the Ligand Knowledge Base have proven very important in articulating the idea of a stereoelectronic map for a number of ligand systems, particularly organophosphorus ligands. This approach allows one to hone in on which phosphine ligands share a set of propeprties that can help inform choice about a suitable system for a given catalytic reaction. More can be found in Natalie’s web pages and from our joint publication on subsets which includes some of the ligands developed in our laboratory, alongside other examples from the groups of Paul Pringle, Duncan Carmichael, Nicolas Mézailles & Christian Müller.
The Nordlander Group
When Ebbe isn’t busy galloping past Brazilian defenders Prof Nordlander and his team are hard at work at Lund University in Sweden as transition metal cluster specialists. Together we are studying the behaviour of primary phosphines upon binding to group 8 metal clusters.
The Pascu Group
Sofia Pascu and her research team at the University of Bath worked together with ourselves and the group of Paul Benny (above) to develop multi-modal imaging agents which you can read more about in the paper below, published in 2014.
The Protasiewicz Group
We recently played a small role in John’s 2012 Dalton manuscript’ Naphthoxaphospholes as examples of fluorescent phospha-acenes’ (below). John and his group at Case Reserve Western University study both fundamental and applied main group chemistry, and with their interests in phosphorus hydrides and fluoresce share many of our own passions.
The Tuna Group
Floriana’s group at the University of Manchester have worked in collaboration with the LJH on magnetism and EPR-related topics. We recently published our joint-findings on slow magnetic relaxation for an apparently ‘simple’ cobalt coordination complex.
