Congratulations to Jett on receiving the runner-up award for best oral presentation at the 2019 RACI Victorian Inorganic Postgraduate Symposium.
Congratulations Gemma on your PhD graduation!
Congratulations to Jett Janetzki who has just completed his MSc(Chemistry) with First Class Honours. Jett’s major thesis was titled “Cobalt complexes with redox-active ligands: switchable magnetic materials”.
Congratulations to Will and Maja on the publication of their paper “Tetraoxolene-bridged rare-earth complexes: a radical-bridged dinuclear Dy single-molecule magnet”, in a special issue of Dalton Transactions celebrating the 60th birthday of Prof Annie Powell. This work was performed in collaboration with Richard Mole and Keith Murray.
Australian Research Council Future Fellowship
Metal-Based Molecular Materials From Electronic Structure to Functionality
This project aims to develop and explore new metal-based molecular materials, focusing on molecules that can act as magnets or be switched between multiple states by heating/cooling. This project expects to deliver an improved understanding of how the molecular electronic structure engenders desired physical properties in the target species. This insight will allow development of design principles for robust systems for nanodevices or advanced materials. As well as achieving important advances in fundamental chemistry, this project is anticipated to help lay the foundations for development of novel materials for high density data storage, quantum computing, molecular electronics/spintronics, optical displays or temperature/solvent sensors.
Colette has just accepted an invitation to speak at the Asian Conference on Molecular Magnetism, ACMM2020, to be held in Fukuoka, Japan, March 8-11, 2020.
Congratulations to Gemma on the publication of her paper “Single-ion anisotropy and exchange coupling in cobalt(II)-radical complexes: insights from magnetic and ab initio studies” in Chemical Science. Performed in collaboration with Alessandro Soncini and workers from Monash, ANSTO and the University of Florence, this experimental and theoretical study provides important new insights into the tricky business of modelling Co(II)-radical species.
Congratulations to Gemma Gransbury on successfully completing all the requirements for her PhD. We wish her all the very best in her future endeavours.
We welcome new MSc students Katya Bondaruk and Vincent Nadurata to the group. Both Vincent and Katya will be working on switchable systems with redox-active ligands. Katya is co-supervised by new collaborator Carol Hua.
