Research interests

  • Organometallic chemistry catalysis
  • Olefin oligimerization catalysts
  • Oxidation catalysts
  • The chemistry of highly hindered metallocenes
  • EXAFS in organometallic chemistry and homogeneous catalysis
  • Synthesis gas catalytic chemistry
  • Carboxylate chemistry

My research is devoted primarily to organometallic chemistry and homogeneous catalysis. Aspects of the research involve the design and synthesis of organometallic species as possible catalysts or active site models (olefin digomerization catalysts, the chemistry of pentaphenylcyclopenhardienyl complexes), the characterization of existing catalysts (the chemistry of ,metal carboxylates, metal carbonyl cluster chemistry, EXAFS or organometallic species and very fast EXAFS of operating catalysts), investigations into and optimization of catalytic conversions of small molecules by homogeneous catalysis (olehin oligomerization, syngas chemistry, hydrocarbon oxidation) and the preparation and characterization of homogeneous catalysts chemically anchored to insoluble supports.

Applications for PhD Admission: These should be made via the University’s web pages. International students should also contact the University’s International Student Office for advice about visa, living and studying in Sydney, etc.. Please note that unless we are advertising scholarships (e.g., on the School of Chemistry web page, which also contains a link to general scholarships for international students), you will need to arrange your own support. You should also consult the University’s scholarships web pages for information about scholarships at Sydney. These can be University-wide (e.g., University of Sydney Postgraduate Awards) or more chemistry focussed (e.g., the Henry Bertie and Florence Mabel Gritton Research Scholarships - Chemistry, or the Richard Claude Mankin Scholarship – Water Conservation). Note that these scholarships are very competitive, so you will need an excellent academic record and very strong support from eminent referees to be competitive.

Applications for Postdoctoral Positions: Please note that unless we are advertising scholarships (e.g., on the School of Chemistry web page, you will need to arrange your own support. International applicants should also contact the University’s International Student Office for advice about visa, living and studying in Sydney, etc..
