synthesis of functional organic compounds


Particular areas of interest in the Crossley Research Group include:

  • molecular recognition by porphyrin systems
  • porphyrin arrays as models for light-harvesting systems involved in photosynthesis
  • new advanced materials
  • porphyrins as medicinal compounds

The projects on offer involve the synthesis of functional organic molecules that are designed to have interesting and useful properties. In general the compounds are based upon heterocyclic porphyrin systems. Please contact Professor Crossley to discuss what research projects are on offer.


Recent publications from this research group can be viewed on the Level 5 noticeboard outside room 514.
