Event details

Richard M Hartshorn presents a special seminar in chemistry.

Co(III) is an ion with a venerable and distinguished history in coordination chemistry. It was one of the key ions for Werner and Jørgensen, as they set about preparing the compounds on which coordination theory is based, and was central to many of the mechanistic studies of the ‘50s, ‘60s, and ‘70s. Now we are exploring its potential use in medicine, as part of dinuclear Ru(II)-Co(III) assemblies, and, in passing, we find ourselves doing some classic Werner-type chemistry as well as functional group chemistry on coordinated ligands.
