Spectroscopy

On this, and subsequent pages, you can see some of our work in the areas of spectroscopy. Currently this is largely based on multinuclear NMR spectroscopy, and vibrational (IR and Raman) spectroscopy. We have a slowly evolving set of pages covering multinuclear NMR studies of a variety of nuclei. You can access tools to aid in the analysis of data as well as access our database and data repository.

You can also access spectroscopic data recorded by our group from here

Software for plotting, measuring, simulating NMR data is available from SpinWorks or Mestrec

Fluorine News
the fluoroalkyl phosphine Ph2PC3F7

Ph2P(i-C3F7)
We reported (Chem. Commun. 2009, 6658) the first generic route to fluoroalkyl-containing phosphines. more ...

An asthma inhaler

Inhaler Propellant
The propellant in many inhalers is an inert hydrofluorocarbon compound. The same material used in air-conditioners.

Fluorine Group News
The crystal packing diagram of [PtBr2{iPr2P(CF=CF2)}2]

[PtBr2{PiPr2(CF=CF2)}2]
Only the second ever unit cell to contain both cis- and trans- isomers of the same complex at the same time. (And the other one is fluorine containing as well!) more...
