Heterobimetallic [NiFe] complexes containing mixed CO/CN− ligands: analogs of the active site of the [NiFe] hydrogenases (2018)
Journal Article
hydrogenases. Inorganic Chemistry, 57(5), doi:10.1021/acs.inorgchem.7b02905. ISSN 0020-1669

The development of synthetic analogs of the active sites of [NiFe] hydrogenases remains challenging and, in spite of the number of complexes featuring a [NiFe] center, those featuring CO and CN− ligands at the Fe center are under-represented. We repo... Read More

A Ni(I)Fe(II) analogue of the Ni-L state of the active site of the [NiFe] hydrogenases (2015)
Journal Article
Perotto, C. U., Marshall, G., Jones, G. J., Lewis, W., McMaster, J., & Schröder, M. (2015). A Ni(I)Fe(II) analogue of the Ni-L state of the active site of the [NiFe] hydrogenases. Chemical Communications, 51, doi:10.1039/c5cc05881c. ISSN 1359-7345

Ni(L1)Fe(tBuNC)4](PF6)2 is a robust NiIIFeII complex that undergoes a reversible one-electron reduction. Spectroscopic and theoretical studies show that [Ni(L1)Fe(tBuNC)4]+ is an unprecedented NiIFeII species that reproduces the electronic configurat... Read More

Velocity measurements in the vicinity of the exit and inlet of a spiral bevel gear shroud (2015)
Conference Proceeding
Simmons, K., & Johnson, G. (2015). Velocity measurements in the vicinity of the exit and inlet of a spiral bevel gear shroud. In Volume 5C: Heat Transferdoi:10.1115/GT2015-43549

In many aeroengines the accessory power offtake is achieved using a spiral bevel gear set running off one of the main shafts. The crown and bevel gears are housed in an internal gearbox. Over the past few years the Nottingham University Technology Ce... Read More
