Professor Peter Taylor

Professional biography

Peter Taylor did his BSc and PhD many years ago at the University of East Anglia. This was followed by a brief spell (1976-78) as a postdoctoral Researcher at Exeter. He joined the Department of Chemistry at the Open University in 1978 and has stayed at the OU ever since. He was promoted to Senior Lecturer in 1993 and to Professor of Organic Chemistry in 2005.

He has been research active throughout this time and has always had at least one student and/or Post Doc for the last 35 years. At present he has one Ph. D. student and two Post Doctoral Fellows. In recent years he has been more interested in working with industry and has had 3 KTPs and a CASE award.

Peter has been involved in the production and presentation of a large number of courses within and without the Science Faculty.  However, in recent years he has spent most of his time in a more senior University role. He was the academic lead on the Academic Principles for Qualifications project. He is Deputy Chair of the Academic Quality and Governance Committee and the Module Results Approval and Qualification Classification Panel and chairs numerous committees and projects around assessment issues, for example he is the academic Director of the Assessment programme.  He is Director of the Open Programme which has over 25 000 students. He is an Associate Lecturer of the project module S810.

In the recent past he has had funding from Wellcome and NESTA for outreach projects around Open University Science broadcasting. Aty present he is one of the Academic leads on the radio series "Inside Science"

Peter is a past chair of the Travel Grants Committee of the Royal Society of Chemistry and was chair of an American Chemical Society named award Committee. He has recently finished a 4 year Tempus project (900 000 euros) on developing e-learning capacity in Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.

Peter is a Principal Fellow of the HEA

Research interests

 

Synthesis and reactions of silsesquioxane cages

We continue to prepare a range of silsesquioxane cages with regular structures and examine their synthesis and interconversions.

Such compounds have been prepared with a range of functionality on each arm. For example, liquid crystalline materials have been prepared using suitably substituted linear arms. Previous work has involved cages with DNA strands attached that act as diagnostic devices, and cages with ligands that complex metal ions for imaging. We have also started examining the phase changes associated with cages with long alkyl arms using WAX, SAX (Diamond), DSC and measuring their liquid crystal properties.

These cage compounds are prepared using a high yielding route from the corresponding triethoxysilane. Careful control of the reaction conditions leads to cages with a fluoride ion trapped in the centre. Until recently we have only been able to encapsulate fluoride with cages that contain an sp2 carbon. In recent years year we have continued the synthesis of encapsulated species where the arm is connected via an sp3 carbon which is attached to an electron withdrawing group. This has led to a number of interesting compounds where both the cation and anion are contained within cages leading to molecular ionic compounds, for example, potassium fluoride where the cation and anion are encapsulated.

The types of arms we use for attaching to silsesquioxane cages are similar to those attached to silica in HPLC. We have an ongoing partnership with Hichrom a manufacturer and distributor of HPLC columns to create new phases.

We recently had a CASE award student, in collaboration with TWI, examinig silsesquioxane coatings for metals.

Mechanistic silicon chemistry

We have been interested in substitution at silicon for over twenty years. In particular we continue to make a range of pentacoordinate silicon compounds and to examine their structures and reactions. We have designed an NMR method for mapping substitution at silicon in solution based on using pentacoordinate structures as models (similar to the Dunitz approach with X-ray). Recent work has involved the preparation of a pentacordinate silicon polymer.

 

Synthetic Organosilicon chemistry

We have a three year KTP with Cornelius Enterprises. This focusses on developing their catalogue of organosilicon intermediates and involve developing cost effective routes to particular targets followed by scale up.  As well as developing materials for contact lenses, we also aim to prepare intermediates for electrical components and healthcare products.

 

Biological silicon chemistry

We have discovered the first unambiguous example of enzyme catalysed Si-O bond formation and cleavage. Most of the work has focussed on monoalkoxytrialkylsilanes and so the outcome has been easy to follow by gc. We are now examining the outcome of enzyme catalysed hydrolysis/condensation of di, tri and tetra alkoxysilanes. We have also engineered phages that have silaffin proteins on then outer coat that precipitate silica.

Teaching interests

My main teaching interests are in organic chemistry, although more recently I have been involved with the production and presentation of project courses.
I have been Course-team chair of four production teams, Course-team chair of five presentation teams. Author on eighteen courseteams.
I won the 1993 Courtaulds Prize for National excellence in the teaching of Polymer Chemistry
From 1999 until 2007 I was Programme Director of the MSc programme (in 2002 the MSc programme won  an OU Teaching award)
In 2009 I won an Open University Teaching Award for "the development of accesible materials using a range of media for informal and formal learning"
Most recently I have been production and presentation Module team chair of S811 - Strategic Management in Life Sciences and Healthcare.
Since January 2012 I have been Director of the Open Programme.
Since January 2013 I have been Director of the Assessment Programme, responsible for assesment innovation across the University
I am a Principal Fellow of the HEA

Impact and engagement

Peter impact and engagement is mainly focussed on working with Industry. In recent years he has had three Knowledge Tranfer Partnerships as well as a CASE award. He has numerous collaborations with a range of Industries that use organosilicon chemistry and is developing a network of SMEs that use organosilicon compounds.

External collaborations

Most of Peter's external collaborations are with Industry and professional bodies.

Peter has been part of international projects in India, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Russia, Brazil and China.
