One-pot ligation-oxidative deselenization at selenocysteine and selenocystine (2016)
Journal Article
Payne, R. J., Mitchell, N. J., Kulkarni, S. S., Wang, S., & Malins, L. (2017). One-pot ligation-oxidative deselenization at selenocysteine and selenocystine. Chemistry - A European Journal, 23(4), doi:10.1002/chem.201604709

The use of native chemical ligation at selenocysteine (Sec) with peptide thioesters and additive-free selenocystine ligation with peptides bearing phenyl selenoesters, in concert with one-pot oxidative deselenization chemistry, is described. These ap... Read More

Single addition of an allyl amine monomer enables access to end-functionalized RAFT polymers via native chemical ligation (2016)
Journal Article
Isahak, N., Gody, G., Malins, L. R., Mitchell, N. J., Payne, R. J., & Perrier, S. (in press). Single addition of an allyl amine monomer enables access to end-functionalized RAFT polymers via native chemical ligation. Chemical Communications, 52, doi:10.1039/C6CC06010B

A novel method for the introduction of a single protected amine-functional monomer at the chain end of RAFT polymers has been developed. This monomer addition, in concert with native chemical ligation, facilitated the development of a simple and vers... Read More

The effect of spaying on the racing performance of female greyhounds (2013)
Journal Article
Payne, R. M. (2013). The effect of spaying on the racing performance of female greyhounds. Veterinary Journal, 198(2), 372-375. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.tvjl.2013.08.026

The effect of spaying (ovariohysterectomy) on racing greyhound performance was analysed. Using data from a longitudinal observational study design, random effects models were used to compare the racing performance before and after spaying. Greyhounds... Read More
