PhD Project - Investigating the atomic and electronic structures of nano-scale molecular metal-oxo clusters.

Supervisor - Dr. Seb Pike (Pike group)

Research Focus

Investigating the synthesis and structure of metal-oxo clusters. My current focus is on Cu(II)-oxo clusters and using air sensitive techniques to optimise their synthesis. I am using a wide range of analytical techniques to probe their electronic and physical structure (SCXRD, PXRD, NMR, EPR, SAXS, ESI-MS, XPS, UV-vis, SQUID, electrochemistry).
