Journal Article
Lentz, J. C., Cavanagh, R., Moloney, C., Falcone Pin, B., Kortsen, K., Fowler, H. R., …Howdle, S. M. (2022). N-Hydroxyethyl acrylamide as a functional eROP initiator for the preparation of nanoparticles under “greener” reaction conditions. Polymer Chemistry, 13(42), 6032-6045. https://doi.org/10.1039/d2py00849a

N-Hydroxyethyl acrylamide was used as a functional initiator for the enzymatic ring-opening polymerisation of ϵ-caprolactone and δ-valerolactone. N-Hydroxyethyl acrylamide was found not to undergo self-reaction in the presence of Lipase B from Candid...

Investigating interfacial electron transfer in dye-sensitized NiO using vibrational spectroscopy (2017)
Journal Article
Black, F. A., Clark, C. A., Summers, G. H., Clark, I. P., Towrie, M., Penfold, T. J., …Gibson, E. A. (2017). Investigating interfacial electron transfer in dye-sensitized NiO using vibrational spectroscopy. Physical Chemistry Chemical Physics, 19(11), 7877-7885. https://doi.org/10.1039/c6cp05712h

Understanding what influences the formation and lifetime of charge-separated states is key to developing photoelectrochemical devices. This paper describes the use of time-resolved infrared absorption spectroscopy (TRIR) to determine the structure an...

We report the excited state photophysics and photochemistry of [ReCl(CO)3(dppz-(CH3)2)] (dppz-(CH3)2 = 11,12-dimethyl-dipyrido[3,2-a:2’,3’-c]phenazine) in CH3CN using timeresolved infrared (TRIR) and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. Ex... Read More about Probing the use of long lived intra-ligand π-π * excited states for photocatalytic systems: a study of the photophysics and photochemistry of [ReCl(CO)3(dppz-(CH3)2)].

Can aliphatic anchoring groups be utilised with dyes for p-type dye sensitized solar cells? (2016)
Journal Article
Hao, Y., Wood, C. J., Clark, C. A., Calladine, J. A., Horvath, R., Hanson-Heine, M. W. D., …Gibson, E. A. (2016). Can aliphatic anchoring groups be utilised with dyes for p-type dye sensitized solar cells?. Dalton Transactions, 45(18), 7708-7719. https://doi.org/10.1039/c6dt00146g

A series of novel laterally anchoring tetrahydroquinoline derivatives have been synthesized and investigated for their use in NiO-based p-type dye-sensitized solar cells. The kinetics of charge injection and recombination at the NiO-dye interface for... Read More about Can aliphatic anchoring groups be utilised with dyes for p-type dye sensitized solar cells?.
