Biography

Phil is currently Professor and Deputy Head of the School of Chemistry. 

His main research areas of interest are:

  • Main Group Organometallic Chemistry: Synthesis, Structure and Application
    Novel chiral main group metal organometallic and amido complexes in asymmetric synthesis.
    Synthesis and structural studies of homo- and hetero-bimetallic main group metal complexes.
    Investigations into the synthesis, structure and stability of novel heavy p-block metal complexes.
  • Medical Imaging
    New bismuth and rare-earth based contrast media for optical and radiographic imaging.
  • Medicinal Chemistry
    Development of new bioactive bismuth compounds as anti-inflammatory, anti-tumour and anti-microbial
    agents.
    Development of new metallo-drugs for combating Leishmania.
    Cellular uptake and bio-distribution of Bi(III).
  • Green and Sustainable Chemistry
    Solvent-free and microwave assisted metal mediated syntheses.
    New catalysts for sustainable chemistry.
