Post-functionalization of a photoactive hybrid polyoxotungstate (2018)
Journal Article
Cameron, J. M., Fujimoto, S., Wei, R., Newton, G. N., & Oshio, H. (in press). Post-functionalization of a photoactive hybrid polyoxotungstate. Dalton Transactions, doi:10.1039/C8DT01253A. ISSN 1477-9226

A new post-functionalization strategy for hybrid polyoxometalate (POM) clusters is presented, whereby the electronic properties and visible-light driven oxidative reactivity of the POM core can be altered by controlled addition of transition metal io... Read More

Shining a light on the photo-sensitisation of organic-inorganic hybrid polyoxometalates (2018)
Journal Article
Cameron, J. M., Wales, D. J., & Newton, G. (in press). Shining a light on the photo-sensitisation of organic-inorganic hybrid polyoxometalates. Dalton Transactions, doi:10.1039/C8DT00400E. ISSN 1477-9226

Finding new ways of using visible light (or, more specifically, solar irradiation) to drive commercially significant and/or challenging chemical processes is an ongoing research goal. Polyoxometalates (POMs) are discrete, metal-oxide clusters which a... Read More

A simple approach to the Visible-light photoactivation of molecular metal oxides (2017)
Journal Article
Fujimoto, S., Cameron, J. M., Wei, R. J., Kastner, K., Robinson, D., Sans, V., …Oshio, H. (2017). A simple approach to the Visible-light photoactivation of molecular metal oxides. Inorganic Chemistry, 56(20), (12169–12177). doi:10.1021/acs.inorgchem.7b01499. ISSN 0020-1669

This study explores a new method to maximise the visible-light driven photocatalytic performance of organic-inorganic hybrid polyoxometalates (POMs). Experimental and theoretical investigations of a family of phosphonate substituted POMs shows that m... Read More

A tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) based tridentate ligand (-(4’-methyl-4,5-di-n-dodecylthylthiotetrathiafulvalene-5’-ylthio)-’-[tris-2,2,2-(1-pyrazolyl)ethoxy]-p-xylene) (L) with long-chain alkyl moieties was prepared in order to obtain a new multi-redox... Read More

Orbital engineering: photoactivation of an organofunctionalized polyoxotungstate (2016)
Journal Article
Newton, G., Oshio, H., Cameron, J., Fujimoto, S., Kastner, K., Wei, R. J., …Sans, V. (2017). Orbital engineering: photoactivation of an organofunctionalized polyoxotungstate. Chemistry - A European Journal, 23(1), doi:10.1002/chem.201605021. ISSN 0947-6539

Tungsten-based polyoxometalates (POMs) are employed as UV-driven photo-catalysts for a range of organic transformations. Their photoactivity is dependent on electronic transitions between frontier orbitals, and thus manipulation of orbital energy lev... Read More
