Polyoxometalates: building blocks for functional nanoscale systems.
The possibilities of creating highly sophisticated functional hierarchical systems with multiple, interdependent, functionalities along with a critical analysis that allows the non-specialist to learn the salient features of POMs are discussed. Expand
Integrated 3D-printed reactionware for chemical synthesis and analysis.
Using a low-cost 3D printer and open-source design software, reactionware for organic and inorganic synthesis was produced, which included printed- in catalysts and other architectures with printed-in components for electrochemical and spectroscopic analysis. Expand
Decoupled catalytic hydrogen evolution from a molecular metal oxide redox mediator in water splitting
A platinum-catalyzed system can produce pure hydrogen over 30 times faster than state-of-the-art proton exchange membrane electrolyzers at equivalent platinum loading, and essentially eliminates the hazardous issue of product gas crossover at the low current densities that characterize renewables-driven water-splitting devices.

Configurable 3D-Printed millifluidic and microfluidic 'lab on a chip' reactionware devices.
We utilise 3D design and 3D printing techniques to fabricate a number of miniaturised fluidic 'reactionware' devices for chemical syntheses in just a few hours, using inexpensive materials producingExpand
3D printing of versatile reactionware for chemical synthesis
A general approach for the production of bespoke chemical reactors, termed reactionware, using two different approaches to extrusion-based 3D printing, which allows versatility in the design and use of reactionware based on the specific needs of the experimental user. Expand
Decoupling hydrogen and oxygen evolution during electrolytic water splitting using an electron-coupled-proton buffer.
The concept of the electron-coupled-proton buffer (ECPB) is introduced, whereby O⁂ and H₂ can be produced at separate times during water electrolysis, which could have advantages in preventing gas mixing in the headspaces of high-pressure electrolysis cells, with implications for safety and electrolyser degradation.

3D-printed devices for continuous-flow organic chemistry
A study in which the versatility of 3D-printing is combined with the processing advantages of flow chemistry for the synthesis of organic compounds, to show how different reactor configurations and substrates give different products. Expand
Combining 3D printing and liquid handling to produce user-friendly reactionware for chemical synthesis and purification
We use two 3D-printing platforms as solid- and liquid-handling fabricators, producing sealed reactionware for chemical synthesis with the reagents, catalysts and purification apparatus integratedExpand
Self-assembly of organic-inorganic hybrid amphiphilic surfactants with large polyoxometalates as polar head groups.
The amphiphilic hybrid molecules can slowly assemble into membrane-like vesicles by using the POM clusters as polar head groups, as studied by laser light scattering and TEM techniques. Expand
Microcalorimetry of interaction of dihydro-imidazo-phenanthridinium (DIP)-based compounds with duplex DNA.
Isothermal titration and differential scanning calorimetry have been used to screen the binding thermodynamics of a family of DNA intercalators based on the dihydro-imidazo-phenanthridinium (DIP) framework, and binding satisfies standard criteria for intercalation. Expand
