Mechanochemistry with mechanical bonds

Any force developed at the macroscopic scale can induce dramatic changes at the molecular scale, even breaking covalent bonds.[1] Indeed, mechanical force is a formidable source of energy that, with its ability to distort, bend and stretch chemical bonds, is unique in its ability to promote reaction pathways that are otherwise inaccessible to traditional methods of activation.

Development of new retrosynthetic disconnections through radical-nucleophilic substitution

Background. Nucleophilic substitution is arguably the most important class of reaction in organic synthesis. Indeed, these reactions are used every day to synthesise new pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, polymers and natural products. Read more

Molecular editing of complex molecules via photocatalytic heteroatom insertion and migration

Modern approaches to drug discovery are increasingly impacted by the development of new synthetic methods, specifically the step-economical and chemospecific manipulation of late-stage intermediates. Read more

Development of New Materials for Optically Programmable and Re-Programmable Printable Memristors for Neuromorphic Computing

Printed electronics (i.e. the technology of fabricating electronic devices and circuits using additive, low-temperature printing processes) promises low-cost, on-demand electronic circuit fabrication, in new form-factors (e.g. Read more

Molecular Design for the Energy Harvesting Materials

Energy is one of many global challenges for our modern society. Lighting devices based on the Organic Light-emitting Diodes (OLEDs) could answer this global challenge by offering the products with energy efficiency up to 100%. Read more

Computational f Element Chemistry

Research in the Kaltsoyannis group focuses on the computational determination of the electronic structure and bonding in molecules and solids from all areas of the periodic table, with particular emphasis on compounds of the f elements. Read more

The chemistry and biophysics of phosphoryl transfer enzymes

One of the most remarkable features of the chemistry of living organisms is the evolutionary utilisation of phosphate esters to provide biopolymers that encode genetic information, deliver temporal protein regulation, generate and distribute free energy throughout the cell, and to provide a ubiquitous handle for metabolic intermediates.

Modelling photosynthetic water oxidation

This project aims use molecular modelling methods and spectroscopy to understand how the protein environment of electron transfer cofactors in photosysnthesis and in particular how the water oxidising complex, facilitates electron transfer and also helps stabilise these radical species to maintain a charge separated state.

Method development and applications of Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR)

Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) is a spectroscopic tool used to study systems containing unpaired electrons. EPR has wide ranging applications from materials science and quantum computing to structural biology and (bio)catalysis. Read more
