Since her appointment, MGF has established the first solid-state group in Hull and obtained funding from EPSRC, Leverhulme Trust and Yorkshire Forward. MGF is one of only few chemists in the UK to have extensive expertise in the use of advanced techniques for the preparation and characterization of oxide, mixed-anion and non-oxide compounds. She was involved in a project on the preparation of silicon nitride based nanoporous ceramics, which are tested by a range of industrial partners for application in gas sensors and as catalysts. She has reported highly novel mixed-anion compounds and the discovery and improvement via chemical manipulation of negative magnetoresistance in a family of sulphides. In this area, she has a long-standing fruitful collaboration with Drs Maignan and Hardy at CRISMAT Laboratoire, Caen. Other national and international collaborations include the University of Birmingham and with Prof G. Calestani at the University of Parma (Italy). She has given numerous invited presentations at conferences and at academic institutions and has written invited reviews in the field. She has published 61 papers to date.
Specialties: INORGANIC SOLID STATE CHEMISTRY: PREPARATION AND CHARACTERISATION OF NON-OXIDE MATERIALS
A novel and simple preparation of amine-modified γ-Fe2O3 nanoparticles is described. The presence of amine groups on the surface, instead of hydroxyl groups, will allow conjugation of biologically active molecules to the iron oxide nanoparticles without the need for a size increasing silica shell. Furthermore, the outer amine-layer increases the temperature of the γ-Fe2O3 to α-Fe2O3 structural...more
Doping of Inorganic Materials in Microreactors - Preparation of Zn doped Fe3O4 Nanoparticles
Lab on a Chip, 2015, 15, 3154 - 3162
Microreactor systems are now used more and more for the continuous production of metal nanoparticles and metal oxide nanoparticles owing to the controllability of the particle size, an important property in many applications. Here, for the first time, we used microreactors to prepare metal oxide nanoparticles with controlled and varying metal stoichiometry. We prepared and characterised Zn-...more
