Inorganic Chemistry

Research in this area spans a number of interests and some projects are interdisciplinary.
Projects include the development of metal-organic molecular frameworks (MOFs), as a recent class of network materials with applications in catalysis, adsorbents and hydrogen storage materials, amongst others.
Other catalytic materials include complexes of Schiff bases, vanadium and other transition metal complexes, carbenes, and phthalocyanines, etc.
Research into the development of new zeolite materials and photoactive materials such as doped titania for renewable energy are also developing.
Professor Watkins ( and Dr Khene ( are staff members to contact.
