Self-metalation of tetraphenyl porphyrin on Au(111): Structural characterisation via X-ray standing wave analysis (2023)
Journal Article

The study of surface-confined reactions provides a route towards characterising the mechanistic processes which underpin heterogeneous catalysis. On-surface reactions provide alternative pathways to solution phase synthesis, and can be studied by a r...

Molecular Diffusion and Self-Assembly: Quantifying the Influence of Substrate hcp and fcc Atomic Stacking (2022)
Journal Article

Molecular diffusion is a fundamental process underpinning surface-confined molecular self-assembly and synthesis. Substrate topography influences molecular assembly, alignment, and reactions with the relationship between topography and diffusion link...

Structural characterisation of molecular conformation and the incorporation of adatoms in an on-surface Ullmann-type reaction (2020)
Journal Article

© 2020, The Author(s). The on-surface synthesis of covalently bonded materials differs from solution-phase synthesis in several respects. The transition from a three-dimensional reaction volume to quasi-two-dimensional confinement, as is the case for...

Ullmann coupling reactions on Ag(111) and Ag(110); substrate influence on the formation of covalently coupled products and intermediate metal-organic structures Metal-Organic Structures (2017)
Journal Article

On-surface reactions based on Ullmann coupling are known to proceed on coinage-metal substrates (e.g. Au, Ag, Cu), with the chemistry of the surface strongly influencing the reaction progression. In addition, the topography of the surface may be expe...

Vernier-Templated Synthesis, Crystal Structure, and Supramolecular Chemistry of a 12-Porphyrin Nanoring (2014)
Journal Article

Vernier templating exploits a mismatch between the number of binding sites in a template and a reactant to direct the formation of a product that is large enough to bind several template units. Here, we present a detailed study of the Vernier-templat... Read More about Vernier-Templated Synthesis, Crystal Structure, and Supramolecular Chemistry of a 12-Porphyrin Nanoring.
