Part of the Springer Theses book series (Springer Theses)

About this book

Introduction

This thesis describes the synthesis and characterization of numerous metal-metal bonded complexes that are stabilized by extremely bulky amide ligands.  It provides a comprehensive overview of the field, including discussions on groundbreaking complexes and reactions, before presenting in detail, exciting new findings from the PhD studies. The thesis appeals to researchers, professors and chemistry undergraduates with an interest in inorganic and/or organometallic chemistry.

About the authors


Jamie Hicks received his first degree (MChem (Hons) with study in Australia) in 2011 from the University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK, after completing his Masters research project with Dr Nathan Patmore.  In early 2012, Jamie moved to Australia to work under the supervision of Professor Cameron Jones at Monash University, Melbourne, researching low-coordination, low-oxidation d-block metal complexes stabilized by extremely bulky amide ligands.  He was awarded his PhD for this work in 2015, where he also received the Mollie Holman Medal for the best thesis in the Faculty of Science that year. Jamie then continued to work at Monash University, undertaking a post doctoral research fellow position under the joint supervision of Dr David Turner and Professor Stuart Batten, investigating amine functionalized metal organic frameworks.
