Cellular uptake studies of two hexanuclear, carboxylate bridged, zinc ring structures using fluorescence microscopy (2012)
Journal Article
Redshaw, C., Elsegood, M. R., Frese, J. W., Ashby, S., Chao, Y., & Mueller, A. (2012). Cellular uptake studies of two hexanuclear, carboxylate bridged, zinc ring structures using fluorescence microscopy. Chemical communications : Chem comm / the Royal Society of Chemistry, 48(53), 6627. doi:10.1039/c2cc32060f

Two hexanuclear zinc complexes have been structurally characterized, and evaluation against several cells showed selective toxicity. Cellular uptake revealed a non-specific process, resulting in accumulation within the cell cytoplasm. © 2012 The Roya...

Enhancement of H2 uptake via fluorination but not lithiation for Zn4N8 and Zn4N6O type clusters (2010)
Journal Article
Redshaw, C., Jana, S., Shang, C., Elsegood, M. R., Lu, X., & Guo, Z. X. (2010). Enhancement of H2 uptake via fluorination but not lithiation for Zn4N8 and Zn4N6O type clusters. Chemical communications : Chem comm / the Royal Society of Chemistry, 46(47), 9055-9057. doi:10.1039/c0cc03380d

The introduction of fluorinated aryls at zinc in Zn (and to a lesser extent Zn4N8-type4N6O) cages led to enhanced H2 uptake. Lithium alkoxides have been shown to link such cages (non-fluorinated), but showed no substantial improvement in uptake.
