Dr. David Mills: New Publication
The Mills group and co-workers have published a paper in the Prof. Mike Lappert memorial issue of Organometallics (DOI:10.1021/om501123e).
The work, led by PhD student Conrad Goodwin, details robust synthetic routes towards alkali metal and lanthanide silylamide complexes. These can be used for future exploitation in the stabilisation of low coordination number and/or low oxidation state f-element complexes. Mr Goodwin has recently been awarded a travel grant from the RSC Manchester and District Local Section to disseminate these results at an international conference this year.
