  4. Anthony Fitzpatrick

Dr Anthony Fitzpatrick BSc, PhD, MRSC

Lecturer of Inorganic Chemistry


Summary

Anthony teaches inorganic chemistry to all levels of undergraduate students covering topics such as organometallics, crystal field theory, structure of inorganic solids.


Research

Research in the Fitzpatrick group aims to synthesise smart switchable molecular materials. These switches range from utilising magnetic phenomena, such as spin crossover and single molecule magnets, for new paradigms of data storage to electrochemical switches for applications in clean energy, storage and sensing.
