Supervisory team. Lead supervisor - Prof Sofia Pascu (Department of Chemistry). Co-supervisors - Dr Pedro Estrela (Department of Electrical & Electronic Engineering), Dr Charareh Pourzand (Department of Pharmacy & Pharmacology).
This project is funded at the University of Strathclyde (supervisor for this studentship). Prof John Murphy. This project arises from recent discoveries of new chemistry in the Murphy group and involves conversion of C-H to C-X bonds.
The project will involve the design and multi-step synthesis of small molecules or polymers using synthetic chemistry techniques such as anhydrous reaction conditions, column chromatography, HPLC purification, NMR, MS and IR characterisation.
