Supramolecular chemistry of substituted cucurbit[: N] urils (2020)
Journal Article
Lin, R. L., Liu, J. X., Chen, K., & Redshaw, C. (2020). Supramolecular chemistry of substituted cucurbit[: N] urils. Inorganic Chemistry Frontiers, 7(17), 3217-3246. https://doi.org/10.1039/d0qi00529k

Since the first example of substituted cucurbit[n]urils (Q[n]), decamethylcucurbit[5]uril (Me10Q[5]), was reported in 1992, numerous substituted Q[n]s have been synthesized and studied. In this review article, we focus on the recognition properties o... Read More about Supramolecular chemistry of substituted cucurbit[: N] urils.

Use of titanium complexes bearing diphenolate or calix[n]arene ligands in α-olefin polymerization and the ROP of cyclic esters (2020)
Journal Article
Santoro, O., & Redshaw, C. (2020). Use of titanium complexes bearing diphenolate or calix[n]arene ligands in α-olefin polymerization and the ROP of cyclic esters. Catalysts, 10(2), https://doi.org/10.3390/catal10020210

In this review, we discuss the use of titanium complexes bearing either bridged diphenolate or calix[n]arene (n = 4, 6, 8) ligation, in the formation of plastics from α-olefins or via the ring opening polymerization (ROP) of cyclic esters. The synthe... Read More about Use of titanium complexes bearing diphenolate or calix[n]arene ligands in α-olefin polymerization and the ROP of cyclic esters.

Functionalization of Pyrene To Prepare Luminescent Materials—Typical Examples of Synthetic Methodology (2016)
Journal Article
Feng, X., Hu, J. Y., Redshaw, C., & Yamato, T. (2016). Functionalization of Pyrene To Prepare Luminescent Materials—Typical Examples of Synthetic Methodology. Chemistry : a European journal, 22(34), 11898-11916. https://doi.org/10.1002/chem.201600465

Pyrene-based π-conjugated materials are considered to be an ideal organic electro-luminescence material for application in semiconductor devices, such as organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs), organic field-effect transistors (OFETs) and organic phot...

Rhodamine-triazine based probes for Cu²⁺ in aqueous media and living cells (2014)
Journal Article
Zhang, Y., Zeng, X., Mu, L., Chen, Y., Zhang, J., Redshaw, C., & Wei, G. (2014). Rhodamine-triazine based probes for Cu²⁺ in aqueous media and living cells. Sensors and actuators. B, Chemical, 204(December), 24-30. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.snb.2014.06.125

The performance of a number of rhodamine-triazine derivatives(probe R1~R4) which utilize rhodamine as the fluorophore with cyanuric chloride as the molecular platform have been evaluated. Spectroscopic analysis revealed that differing structural subs... Read More about Rhodamine-triazine based probes for Cu²⁺ in aqueous media and living cells.
