Abstract

Angus Shephard studied a range of alternative synthetic methods for accessing valuable rare earth metal complexes. He explored new and previously unused methods of synthesising rare earth biphenolate complexes, superbulky lanthanoid metallocene complexes, and lanthanoid formamidinate and pyrazolate species. His work has provided fundamental insight into the reactivity of free rare earth metals.
