Apr 2017: Graham's VMI study of MoO and CrO complexes published in the special JCP edition dedicated to VMI

The latest VMI photodissociation study of neutral metal-containing molelcues providing much improved dissociatin energies and intriguing diossociation dynamics.

Jan 2017: Andreas's IR-MPD study of M+(CO2) complexes published in J. Phys. Chem. A

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

Jan 2017: Dean and Jing's DmCry MFE paper published in Scientific Reports

An unambiguous mT magnetic field effect observed in an animal cryptochrome using a variety of techniques. Congratulations to all.

Dec 2016: Lauren and Tilo's Maquette MFE paper published in JACS

MFE detected in a syntheic "maquette" model of a cryptochrome. A collaboration between groups in Oxford and Philadelphia. Congratulations to all.

Oct 2016: Arise Dr Sheppard

You wait a year for a Dphil viva and then two come along within a month.... congratulations to Dean Sheppard on success in his DPhil viva. The examiners, Profs Andrew Orr-Ewing (Bristol) and Nick Green were impressed by Dean's development of novel optical-cavity techniques for the measurement of magnetic field effects in proteins.Dean takes up a number of stipendiary lectureships teaching physchem for Trinity and Magdalen College.

Oct 2016: New starters in the Mackenzie lab

The Mackenzie group wecomes four new members: Alice Green joins us for a DPhil from St Andrew's and Dan Price (Oriel), Ben Atkinson (Magdalen) and Malcolm Kittle (Oriel) join as Part II students

Sept 2016: Congratulations Dr Cooper

Congratulations to Graham Cooper on success in his DPhil viva. Graham leaves us for a postdoc position at Newcastle with Dr Nick Walker. Good luck!

Sept 2016: Flavin Ascorbic Acic MFE study published in JCP

More congratulations to Emrys and Daniel as their Flavin / Ascorbic Acid MFE study is published in JCP .

Mar 2016: Chemical amplification of MFEs published in Nature Chem

Congratulations to Emrys and Daniel and the wider CRT / PJH/ SRM MFE collaboration on the Nature Chemistry article describing chemical amplification of magnetic field effects.
