New work on 2-picolyl derived naphthalene diimide and bis-phthalimide ligands accepted

Many congratulations to June, now in her second PhD year, who has had her paper with Chris Hawes (former member of the TG Group and now and independent lecturer at the School of Chemical and Physical Sciences, Keele University, UK, named “Crystallographic studies of 2-picolyl substituted naphthalene diimide and bis-phthalimide ligands and their supramolecular coordination chemistry”, accepted for publication in CrystEngComm (DOI: 10.1039/C8CE01756E). This work is another excellent outcome of a very fruitful collaboration between the group and Chris, based on exploring the supramolecular application of naphthalene-based building blocks with various d-metal ions, featuring extended analysis of the various complexes formed by using single crystal structure analysis, but Chris was instrumental (as well as Brendan Twamley) in training several members of the TG group in carrying out their own X-ray analysis.Cryst

Good job!
