Journal Article
Humble, R. W., Middleton, D. F., Banoub, J., Ewing, D. F., Boa, A. N., & Mackenzie, G. (2011). A synthesis of bredinin (Mizoribine®) from an acyclic precursor. Tetrahedron letters; the international organ for the rapid publication of preliminary communications in organic chemistry, 52(47), 6223-6227. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.tetlet.2011.09.085

Bredinin (4-carbamoyl-1-β-D-ribofuranosylimidazolium-5-olate, 1) was synthesised by the formation of amalonamate from 2,3-isopropylidene-D-ribofuranosylamine and ethyl malonyl chloride, followed by a sequence involving amination, via reduction of an...

Sporopollenin capsules at fluid interfaces: Particle-stabilised emulsions and liquid marbles (2011)
Journal Article
Binks, B., Boa, A. N., Kibble, M. A., MacKenzie, G., & Rocher, A. (2011). Sporopollenin capsules at fluid interfaces: Particle-stabilised emulsions and liquid marbles. Soft matter, 7(8), 4017-4024. https://doi.org/10.1039/c0sm01516d

Hollow particles of sporopollenin from spores of the plant Lycopodium clavatum have been prepared. These particles possess ionisable groups on their surface such that they become increasingly negatively charged with an increase in pH. The particles a...
