Our group studies the ultrafast dynamics of excited states in nature-inspired molecules using gas-phase time resolved ion yield and velocity map ion imaging spectroscopies along with solution-phase transient electronic and vibrational absorption spectroscopies.
29.12.17- Collaborative work on Platinum complexes accepted!
Work led by Robbin Vernooj on 'Spectroscopic Studies on Photoinduced Reactions of the Anticancer Prodrug, trans,trans,trans-[Pt(N3)2(OH)2(py)2]' has been accepted in Chem. Eur. J. A collaboration between researchers at Monash and Warwick, with Robbin as the common link, has been dedicated to the memory of Prof Leone Spiccia who sadly passed away earlier this year. Despite co-supervising Robbin with Leone (along with Peter and Bayden), I never met Leone. However, I have only heard terrific things said about him. RIP Leone Spiccia.
29.12.17-Mitch's paper on trans/cis dynamics of model plant sunscreen accepted
Mitch's paper on 'Investigating isomer specific photoprotection in a model plant sunscreen' has been accepted in Chem. Comm. Many congrats to Mitch and also to the invaluable collaboration with Florent's team in AgraParisTech.
