Low-dimensional quantum magnetism in Cu(NCS)2: a molecular framework material (2018)
Journal Article
Cliffe, M. J., Lee, J., Paddison, J. A., Schott, S., Mukherjee, P., Gaultois, M. W., …Grey, C. P. (2018). Low-dimensional quantum magnetism in Cu(NCS)2: a molecular framework material. Physical Review B, 97(14), doi:10.1103/physrevb.97.144421

Low-dimensional magnetic materials with spin-12 moments can host a range of exotic magnetic phenomena due to the intrinsic importance of quantum fluctuations to their behavior. Here, we report the structure, magnetic structure and magnetic properties... Read More

Self-assembling benzothiazole-based gelators: a mechanistic understanding of in vitro bioactivation and gelation (2018)
Journal Article
Citossi, F., Smith, T., Lee, J. B., Segal, J., Gershkovich, P., Stocks, M. J., …Marlow, M. (in press). Self-assembling benzothiazole-based gelators: a mechanistic understanding of in vitro bioactivation and gelation. Molecular Pharmaceutics, 15(4), doi:10.1021/acs.molpharmaceut.7b01106

Low molecular weight gelators (LMWGs) of chemotherapeutic drugs represent a valid alternative to the existing poly-mer-based formulations used for targeted delivery of anticancer drugs. Herein we report the design and development of novel self-assemb... Read More

Correlated defect nanoregions in a metal–organic framework (2014)
Journal Article
Cliffe, M. J., Wan, W., Zou, X., Chater, P. A., Kleppe, A. K., Tucker, M. G., …Goodwin, A. L. (2014). Correlated defect nanoregions in a metal–organic framework. Nature Communications, 5, doi:10.1038/ncomms5176

Throughout much of condensed matter science, correlated disorder is a key to material function. While structural and compositional defects are known to exist within a variety of metal–organic frameworks (MOFs), the prevailing understanding is that th... Read More

PASCal: a principal axis strain calculator for thermal expansion and compressibility determination (2012)
Journal Article
Cliffe, M. J., & Goodwin, A. L. (2012). PASCal: a principal axis strain calculator for thermal expansion and compressibility determination. Journal of Applied Crystallography, 45(6), 1321-1329. doi:10.1107/s0021889812043026

This article describes a web-based tool (PASCal; principal axis strain calculator; http://pascal.chem.ox.ac.uk) designed to simplify the determination of principal coefficients of thermal expansion and compressibilities from variable-temperature and... Read More
