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.

Two Cronin group polyoxometalate articles back-to-back in Angewandte Chemie

Two papers from the group appeared in the latest issue of Angewandte Chemie covering very different approaches to polyoxometalate chemistry. In “Directed Assembly of Inorganic Polyoxometalate-based Micrometer-Scale Tubular Architectures by Using Optical Control”, laser-induced flow patterns are used to direct the self-assembly of dissolved inorganic polyoxometalate clusters into robust, hollow tubular networks and micro-materials in real time. This technique where tubes ‘go with the flow’ allows development of devices in which the self-assembled tubes act as microscopic flow channels. This work is also featured on the cover of the journal. A few pages later, in “Assembly of a Gigantic Polyoxometalate Cluster {W200Co8O660} in a Networked Reactor System”, a networked reactor system is used for the first time for the discovery and synthesis of new polyoxometalates, including a gigantic {W200} tungstate. The system comprising three interlinked reactors was used to screen multiple one-pot reactions and reaction variables to discover conditions for cluster synthesis in an automated way.
