• Mahbod, Steph and Pickle’s paper on hydroxy-containing anion receptors is selected as a “Very Important Paper” and published in a special issue of Chem. Asian J. celebrating New Zealand chemistry. This was originally supposed to be an “easy” undergraduate project that got a bit out of hand!

Nick publishes a “Frontier” (aka mini-review) on self-assembled amidinium and guanidinium frameworks in Dalton Transactions as an invited contribution to the “New Talent: Asia Pacific” special issue.

Sadly, funding for Dr Steph runs out so she leaves the group, and is moving down the corridor to be the lieutenant for our new head of school (Prof. Penny Brothers). Her scientific contributions and “unique” laugh will be sadly missed. Undergraduate student Duncan joins the group for a summer project.

 Mahbod’s Chem. Sci. paper is chosen to be part of the Royal Society of Chemistry’s collection of 100 papers celebrating 100 years of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute. Tom’s Chem. Asian J. paper is highlighted by Chemistry Views.
