The Research Group
The research group occupies a number of labs throughout the Johnson and Badger Buildings of the University of Adelaide's North Terrace Campus. We have state-of-the-art labs for materials synthesis and structure solution (by single crystal and powder X-ray diffraction - the Bragg Crystallography Facility) that complement the synthetic chemistry facilities.
See our group website: www.sumbydoonangroup.com
The research group is co-managed by Assoc. Prof. Christian Doonan.
