Joe Abdalla and Remi Tirfoin become the 17th and 18th doctoral students to graduate from the Aldridge group (since the first in 2002), and the 8th/9th since the groupís relocation to Oxford in 2007. Joeís thesis involved Investigation of E-H bond activation processes involving gallium and aluminium, aspects of which can be found here, and was defended shortly after a similarly successful stint in the Isis boat race crew. Remiís work involved Anion and neutral molecule recognition by electron deficient boranes and after a short spell in the US, he is intending to start post-doctoral work over the summer.


Prof Aldridge to give plenary lecture to the IRIS main group chemistry meeting in Regensburg and invited keynote lecture to the ICOMC meeting in Melbourne.


Post-doctoral co-worker Jesus Campos was awarded the Annual Prize for the Best PhD Thesis (2012-2013) from the Andalusia Section of the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry (RSEQ) for his work entitled Synthesis and Catalytic Applications of Rhodium and Iridium Complexes bearing Phosphine and Cyclopentadienyl Ligands.
