Reductive synthesis of metal antimonides (2010)
Journal Article
Kift, R. L., & Prior, T. J. (2010). Reductive synthesis of metal antimonides. Journal of Alloys and Compounds, 505(2), 428-433. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jallcom.2010.06.078

A new low temperature synthetic route to binary and ternary metal antimonides is reported. Binary transition metal antimonides prepared include CoSb3, CoSb2, CoSb, NiSb, NiSb2, Cu2Sb and Mo3Sb2; new ternary compositions prepared include the series Co...

Ionothermal synthesis and crystal structures of metal phosphate chains (2010)
Journal Article
Wragg, D. S., Le Ouay, B., Beale, A. M., O'Brien, M. G., Slawin, A. M., Warren, J. E., …Morris, R. E. (2010). Ionothermal synthesis and crystal structures of metal phosphate chains. Journal of Solid State Chemistry, 183(7), 1625-1631. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jssc.2010.05.002

We have prepared isostructural aluminium and gallium phosphate chains by ionothermal reactions in 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium bromide and 1-ethylpyridinium bromide under a variety of conditions. The chains can be prepared as pure phases or along with... Read More about Ionothermal synthesis and crystal structures of metal phosphate chains.

Observation and isolation of layered and framework ytterbium hydroxide phases using in situ energy-dispersive X-ray diffraction (2010)
Journal Article
McIntyre, L. J., Prior, T. J., & Fogg, A. M. (2010). Observation and isolation of layered and framework ytterbium hydroxide phases using in situ energy-dispersive X-ray diffraction. Chemistry of materials : a publication of the American Chemical Society, 22(8), 2635-2645. https://doi.org/10.1021/cm1000208

In situ energy-dispersive X-ray diffraction has been used to investigate the synthesis of the recently reported lanthanide hydroxynitrate phases, Ln 2 (OH) 5 NO 3 ·1.5H 2 O (Ln = Y, Er, Yb). Through control of the reaction temperature, three distinct...

Desymmetrisation of (4R,5S)-4,5-diphenylimidazolidine-2-thione using pentafluorophenyl active esters (2010)
Journal Article
Andreou, A., Eames, J., Motevalli, M., Prior, T. J., & Watkinson, M. (2010). Desymmetrisation of (4R,5S)-4,5-diphenylimidazolidine-2-thione using pentafluorophenyl active esters. Tetrahedron letters; the international organ for the rapid publication of preliminary communications in organic chemistry, 51(10), 1423-1425. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.tetlet.2010.01.019

(4R,5S)-4,5-Diphenylimidazolidine-2-thione is efficiently desymmetrised by stereorandom deprotonation with NaHMDS, followed by kinetic resolution of the resulting racemic intermediate with an enantiomerically pure pentafluorophenyl active ester. The... Read More about Desymmetrisation of (4R,5S)-4,5-diphenylimidazolidine-2-thione using pentafluorophenyl active esters.
