Research interests

We work on exploratory and applied synthetic inorganic chemistry of the lanthanides and actinides. 

Please see www.farnabygroup.com for further details. Research areas include:

Investigation of lanthanide photophysics in molecules and aggregates, for the design of light-emitting materials. 

Single Molecule Spectroscopy of lanthanide complexes in collaboration with the www.hedleylab.com.

Reactive and unusual lanthanide (Ln) coordination complexes, where the Ln(III) or Ln(II) are supported in the scorpionate nitrogen-donor hydrotris(pyrazolyl)borate (Tp) ligand environment.

Multi-metallic molecular systems, which combine unique optical and electronic properties, and in which light, spin and electron transfer can be usefully manipulated.

Actinide chemistry to support the scientific and future challenges of the UK’s civil plutonium inventory, in collaboration with nuclear industry partners.
