Organometallic chemistry is an interdisciplinary science which continues to grow at a rapid pace. Although there is continued interest in synthetic and structural studies, the last decade has seen a growing interest in the potential of organometallic chemistry to provide answers to problems in catalysis, synthetic organic chemistry and also in the development of new materials. Each volume in the series is published either annually or biennially and is a superb reference point for researchers.
Professor Ian Fairlamb's core interests are in transition metal chemistry in synthetic organic chemistry, catalyst design and mechanistic understanding. His work has strong links to biological chemistry, particularly the utilisation of transition metal chemistry in the synthesis of therapeutic agents such as CO releasing molecules and functionalised heteroaromatic compounds. Dr Lynam's main research interest is in the synthesis of transition metal complexes containing nucleobases with a view to utilising the hydrogen bonding properties of these species to direct the self assembly of supramolecular organometallic architectures.
