Prof. Sally Brooker

Congratulations to Professor Sally Brooker on being admitted as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry.

This Fellowship was awarded to Sally because of her outstanding contribution to chemistry.

Professor Sally Brooker is a leading expert in the rational design and synthesis of libraries of acyclic and macrocyclic ligands, incorporating bridging groups which facilitate communication between paramagnetic metal ions. The resulting metal compounds set a precedent in combining the spin-crossover phenomenon with magnetic exchange, and are important for the development of candidates for incorporation into nano-devices for information storage and processing, as they may be switched between two or more different electronic states.
