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