Mills Group: Dalton Younger Members Event Prize

Conrad Goodwin, a PhD student with Dr David Mills, has won a prize for his talk at the inaugural Dalton Younger Members Event in Leeds in September.

Conrad (third from left, pictured with other prize winners, local organisers and guest speakers) presented work from the first two years of his PhD on utilising bulky silylamide ligands to stabilise f-elements in unusual oxidation states and geometries. These ligands have also recently shown their applicability in stabilising heteroleptic magnesium complexes (Dalton Trans, 2015, DOI:10.1039/C5DT02535D).
