The Wright Group's research interests are firmly focused on inorganic synthesis and materials chemistry. Within these fields our interests span a number of areas of main group and transition metal chemistry, including macrocyclic main group compounds, main-group element mediated bond-forming reactions, molecular single-source precursors for the deposition of inorganic materials, and energy storage.
The Wright group has established collaborations with a number of groups within Cambridge (Prof Clare Grey and Dr Erwin Reisner) focusing on energy materials as well as many international collaborations in Germany (Prof Ali Alavi, Cambridge/Max Planck Institute; Prof Lutz Gade, University of Heidelberg; Prof Evamarie Hey-Hawkins, University of Leipzig), China (Prof Zhang, Zhejiang University of Technology), and Singapore (Dr He-Kuan Luo, A*STAR Institute of Materials Research and Engineering).
Cassius Clark recently presented his work at MRS Spring Meeting, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA.
Nadia Farag, Victor Riesgo-Gonzalez, Dr Rajesh Jethwa, Dr Jonny Slaughter, and Dr Darren Ould recently presented their individual work at the ECS meeting, Vancouver, Canada.
Congratulations of Dr. Rajesh Jethwa for passing his viva!
Prof. Dominic Wright has been awarded Supervisor of the Year 2021 by the Yusuf Hamied Department of Chemistry
