This IR study of gold-methane ion-molecule colmplexes and been published in Topics in Catalysis DOI: 0.1007/s11244-017-0868-z in which the structures and internal rotation dynamics of the title complexes are determined and we present evidence of vibratioanally enhanced dehydrogenation reactions.
A huge collaborative effort including many research groups (including Alex Gentleman from the SRM group) the Coulomb Explosion Imaging of concurrent CH2BrI photodissociation has been published in Physical Review A . Congratulations to Michael Burt in coordinating it all.
Congratulations to Andreas on his success in his DPhil viva. Mackenzie DPhil number 14, Andreas's thesis is entitled "Photofragmentation Studies of Metal Ion-Molecule Complexes and Metal Oxides"
Ethan's infrared study study of coinage metal ion / nitrous oxide complexes has been published in JPCA showing clear evidence of N-bound and O-bound isomers
The Mackenzie group wecomes Peter Beardsmore (STJ), Dan Sowood (STJ) and Tom Spearman (Brasenose) as Part II students
The latest VMI photodissociation study of neutral metal-containing molelcues providing much improved dissociatin energies and intriguing diossociation dynamics.
The first paper from a new instrument in the Mackenzie group, this article describes the structure of important gas-phase metal ligand complexes using a combination of IR-spectroscopy (using the inert messenger technique) and DFT simulations
An unambiguous mT magnetic field effect observed in an animal cryptochrome using a variety of techniques. Congratulations to all.
MFE detected in a syntheic "maquette" model of a cryptochrome. A collaboration between groups in Oxford and Philadelphia. Congratulations to all.
