Personal profile

Research interests

Although research in the Hill group is rooted in molecular organometallic chemistry, our interests are somewhat broader and span from the discovery of environmentally benign and atom-efficient catalysts to the development of precursors for nanoparticle synthesis or chemical vapour deposition.

Current research projects include

  • Catalysis with alkaline earth complexes (polymer and molecular chemistry)
  • ‘Subvalent’ and multiply bonded main group species
  • Catenated and ‘sigma delocalised’ group 13- and group 14-based electronic materials
  • Organolanthanide (stereospecific) catalysis (polymer and molecular chemistry)
  • Precursors for chemical vapour deposition and nanomaterials

Research Interests

  • Group 2 Complexes in Molecular Catalysis
  • Subvalent Main Group Species
  • Catenated and ‘Sigma-delocalised’ Group 13 and Group 14 Polymeric materials
  • Organolanthanide Chemistry for Enantioselective Catalysis
  • Precursors for Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD)
