01.08.2018-Farewell to Neil

A sad farewell to Neil, who joined the group 2.5 years ago on a Leverhulme Trust funded research project joint with Prof. Dmitry Shalashilin (Leeds). Thank you Neil for all your hard work during your stay at Warwick. You have been invaluable to the team and we wish you every success for the future.

.... more upbeat news is that Neil and Nat's paper was accepted two days later!

Many congratulations to Nat on successfully defending her thesis work. Celebrations will follow, no doubt with a trip to Zeenats....?

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.
