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.

Lee Cronin Wins 2018 Inorganic Chemistry Lectureship

Prof Cronin has been awarded 2018 Inorganic Chemistry Lectureship. The lectureship was launched in 2013 by Inorganic Chemistry and ACS division of inorganic chemistry, to “annually recognize an individual who has demonstrated creativity and impact in leading research in inorganic chemistry”.

The award is in recognition of the Cronin group’s ground-breaking work on polyoxometalate chemistry, including the innovative use of multidisciplinary techniques such as robotics and AI to make new discoveries. As winner of the lectureship, Prof Cronin will present a session in his honour at the 2018 ACS Fall National Meeting in Boston, which will take place in August.

Further details of the award can be found on the ACS website.
