MSc by research: Reactions on the Periphery of a Dimolybdenum Paddlewheel Complex

University of York Department of Chemistry

Full time See Course MSc 1 year research plus 3 months writing

About the course

This project will be supervised by Dr Luke A. Wilkinson.


Dimolybdenum paddlewheel complexes (Mo2 PWCs) are incredibly versatile synthons for the formation of functional molecules. With systematic variation of bridging or axial ligands, a vast array of properties (i.e. redox, optical, magnetic) can be intentionally tuned, making them applicable towards multiple avenues of research. Mo2 PWCs have a quadruple bond between the Mo atoms which is particularly interesting as it imparts an intense colour, redox-activity and they exhibit fascinating photophysical properties, such as exceptionally long-lived excited state triplet lifetimes (>100 μs). Their synthesis is facile, (especially for Mo2(O2CR)4,), employs simple base metal starting materials and can be tuned towards various
