School research highlighted in the Nature Research periodic table
As part of celebrations for 150 years of the periodic table and research published in Nature and Nature Research journals, research from colleagues in the School has been highlighted in no fewer than six element entries in the Nature Research periodic table.
The featured elements are as follows:
- Arsenic features work published in Nature Chemistry from Steve Liddle’s group describing the synthesis and characterisation of uranium-arsenic single, double, and triple bond interactions.
- Dysprosium highlights work published in Nature from Dave Mills and Nick Chilton’s groups reporting molecular magnetic hysteresis at 60 kelvin in dysprosocenium.
- Neptunium contains work published in Nature Chemistry involving quantum chemical calculations from Nik Kaltsoyannis’ research group on organometallic neptunium complexes.
- Samarium incorporates work published in Nature Chemistry from the groups of David Procter and Joe McDouall disclosing enantioselective cyclisations and cyclisation cascades promoted by samarium ketyl radicals.
- Thorium features work published in Nature Communications by Steve Liddle’s group describing thorium-phosphorus single and multiple bond interactions.
- Uranium includes work published in Nature Communications by Steve Liddle’s group that presents evidence for two-electron oxidative addition and reductive elimination at uranium ions.
