Dr Joy Farnaby

  • Lecturer (School of Chemistry)

Research interests

The Farnaby group studies the fundamental science and applications of f-element chemistry.

These elements have unique properties with wide application in materials science and are a critical resource in low-carbon and renewable energy technologies.

To develop future energy materials, there is a need for ‘bottom-up’ synthetic routes and better understanding of structure/property/function relationships.

Our interest is in the synthesis of complex multi-metallic lanthanide and actinide systems from organometallic building-blocks.

  • Organometallic precursors to functional actinide materials
  • Hetero-metallic compounds (5f with 3d/4f) for materials science
  • Nuclear reprocessing chemistry and next generation fuels
  • Synthetic uranium chemistry: Molecular and Supramolecular
