Summary

 

Summary

Nick Long is the Sir Edward Frankland BP Chair in Inorganic Chemistry.

The Long Group have expertise in applied synthetic inorganic and organometallic chemistry.  Research interests focus on transition metal and lanthanide chemistry for the synthesis of functional molecules, homogeneous catalysis and in recent years, probe design and novel methodologies for biomedical imaging.

Nick has published around 180 papers, including several high impact review articles and textbooks - ''Metallocenes'' and 'The Chemistry of Molecular Imaging'   (http://eu.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-1118093275.html).

gifSee our  recent findings of some beautiful ferrocene rings in Nature Chemistry (Sept 2016)  http://www.nature.com/nchem/journal/vaop/ncurrent/full/nchem.2553.html7

He was awarded the 2006 RSC Prize in Organometallic Chemistry, was a Leverhulme Trust Research Fellow 2009/10 and in 2011, became a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry and was appointed to the Frankland Chair.
