The Cronin Group

Research in the Cronin Group is motivated by the fascination for complex chemical systems, and the desire to construct complex functional molecular architectures that are not based on biologically derived building blocks.

New gigantic Palladium macrocycle opens the way to a library of nano-structures

Cronin group researchers have developed a new screening approach to cluster discovery, which could pave the way for developing a new library of nano-structures. By using a new modular approach to construction of the giant Pd84 wheel, other ligands were incorporated and two new macrocycles were discovered. These results show Palladium clusters to be a new class of tunable nanostructures, and it is hoped that the solution screening approach could lead to the discovery of large inorganic nanostructures without the need for crystallisation.
