"Jim Turner"

Jim Turner – Born in Darwen, Lancashire UK, and read chemistry at King's College, Cambridge. He obtained his PhD on "High Resolution NMR Spectroscopy" under the supervision of Norman Sheppard FRS. After a year studying theoretical chemistry with Christopher Longuet-Higgins FRS, he spent 2 years on a Harkness Fellowship, working with George Pimentel in Berkeley where he acquired his interest in Matrix Isolation. In 1964 he returned to Cambridge as Fellow of King's College and Demonstrator/Lecturer in Chemistry. In 1972, he was appointed to the Chair of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, where George Porter visited his lab. He moved to the Chair of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Nottingham in 1979 where he currently (2006) continues to work as Emeritus Professor. As will be clear from this chapter, his principal research interests have centred on organometallic photochemistry and the structure and reactivity of reaction intermediates. He has the Tilden and Liversidge Medals of the Royal Society of Chemistry and was elected to the Royal Society in 1992.
