Steve attended the 9th Annual Symposium of the UK 850 MHz Solid-State NMR Facility on 28 March 2019, which was held this year at the University of Warwick. Steve made a presentation to Adrian Brunsdon of Bruker UK for his outstanding service to the UK solid-state NMR community over the last 35 years.
Steve chaired a meeting of the Time Allocation Panel (TAP) of the UK 850 MHz Solid-State NMR Facility at the University of Warwick on 27 November 2018.
Sharon Ashbrook and Steve's 2004 paper "High-Resolution NMR of Quadrupolar Nuclei in Solids: The Satellite-Transition Magic Angle Spinning (STMAS) Experiment" has now been cited more than 100 times [Get Reprint].
Steve has been re-appointed to the Editorial Board of the journal Chemical Physics Letters for a further three years.
Sabu and Steve's paper "Two-Dimensional 1H and 1H-Detected NMR Study of a Heterogeneous Biocatalyst Using Fast MAS at High Magnetic Fields" with collaborators Peter Halling of the University of Strathclyde and Daniel Häussinger of the University of Basel has been published in Solid State Nucl. Magn. Reson. [Get Reprint].
Steve has been re-elected to the Council of the International Society of Magnetic Resonance (ISMAR) for the period 2018-21.
Sabu has come to the end of his 3-year Leverhulme Trust postdoc position working on solid-state NMR of immobilised enzymes and has left Lancaster. He will be greatly missed.
Steve's paper "A High-Resolution Natural Abundance 33S MAS NMR Study of the Cementitious Mineral Ettringite" has been published in Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys. [Get Reprint].
