The American Chemical Society celebrates 100 years of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute by highlighting a select few outstanding contributions by Australian groups in 2016. The following staff and students from the School of Physical Environmental and Mathematical Science at UNSW Canberra were among that elite group of researchers.

A PEMS team led by Dr Lynne Wallace and Dr Anthony Day:

Iridium Cyclometalated Complexes in Host–Guest Chemistry: A Strategy for Maximizing Quantum Yield in Aqueous Media
