Our current research focuses on the development of strategies to process microporous metal-organic framework materials into application-specific configurations to address major challenges in healthcare and sustainability

ResearcherID

Darren Bradshaw gained a PhD in bioinorganic chemistry from the University of Sheffield in 2001 under the guidance of Prof David E. Fenton, working on the synthesis and characterisation of dinuclear Zn complexes as models for the active sites of important hydrolytic enzymes. Following this he moved to the University of Liverpool as a postdoctoral fellow in the design, synthesis and characterisation of large pore and chiral metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) with Prof Matthew J. Rosseinsky FRS. In 2005 he was awarded a 5 year tenure track Research Councils UK (RCUK) Academic Fellowship in materials discovery and was appointed lecturer in inorganic chemistry at Liverpool in 2010. In 2010 he was the recipient of a prestigious 5 year European Research Council (ERC) starting grant for a project titled ‘Biomineral-inspired growth and processing of metal-organic frameworks: BIOMOF’ to develop strategies to process MOFs into application-specific configurations and composites, including the use of biological macromolecules and matrices to confine growth, increase solubility and enhance biocompatibility of this important class of porous solids. In summer 2012 he joined the school of chemistry at the University of Southampton as a Reader in Functional Materials.
