Research interests

Our research involves the synthesis and study of polymetallic cage complexes. Much of our work involves molecular magnetism, and we have developed many 3d- and 4f-single molecule magnets. We have also developed heterometallic rings as possible qubits for quantum information processing. More recently we have been using this skill to model corrosion and inhibition processes.


Keywords: coordination chemistry; molecular magnetism; inorganic synthesis; chromium; lanthanides; supramolecular chemistry; nanoscience
