New publication on Angew. Chem from Reading-Dublin collaboration

Tayler David Prieto (ESR2, University of Reading) published, together with colleagues from the Cardin group in Reading and the Kellett group at DCU, a paper on Angewandte Chemie (International Edition) titled “Probing a major DNA weakness: resolving the groove and sequence selectivity of the diimine complex [Λ-Ru(phen)2phi]2+”. This work notably benefitted from the use of the infrastructure at Diamond Light Source Ltd.

The paper demonstrates, for the first time, a crystal structure showing groove selectivity by an intercalating ruthenium complex.

It is available in Open Access on the publisher’s website.
