We have developed a number of switchable coordination motifs that can be used as the basis for molecular machines. More recently we have been developing rotaxane and catenane based on CoIII chemistry.

In addition, we are currently pursuing strategies that utilise photoredox catalysis to drive systems far away from equilibrium (Leverhulme RPG-2015-232).
