organic chemistry PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 140 organic chemistry PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

PhD in Chemistry: Applications of main group Lewis acids in synthetic organic chemistry

Applications of main group Lewis acids in synthetic organic chemistry. This project will investigate the use of boron or aluminium Lewis acids in transformations typically catalysed by transition metals. Read more

Metal-Free, Light-Mediated Decarboxylative Reactions

Project Summary. The Lee Group will relocate to University of Edinburgh from September 2024 and is recruiting a motivated PhD student to develop sustainable methodologies for light-mediated reactions. Read more

Design and synthesis of chemical tools to interrogate cannabinoid receptors - synthetic, medicinal chemistry

Research project. We are seeking a highly motivated PhD candidate to join an interdisciplinary team at the University of Otago, to undertake research developing chemical probes for the cannabinoid receptor, a type of G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR). Read more

Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products

These projects are open to students worldwide, but have no funding attached. Therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to fund tuition fees at the relevant level (home or international) and any applicable additional research costs. Read more

Synthesis of macrocycles and medium-sized rings via new ring expansion approaches

Summary. Macrocycles (12+ membered rings) and medium-sized rings (8–11-membered) are cyclic molecules with great potential in many scientific fields and technologies – especially in medicinal chemistry. Read more

Stereoselective synthesis of mechanically chiral molecules for sensing and catalysis

Background – the stereoselective synthesis of mechanically chiral molecules. The stereoselective synthesis of chiral organic molecules is one of the core challenges in synthetic organic chemistry. Read more

Non-thermal plasma as a chemical reagent: elucidating mechanism and exploring NTP for pharmaceutically relevant electroreductive reactions

Chemistry depends on electrons, but we cannot yet fully control electrons to deliver precise reactivity. Controlled high-energy electron sources—such as non-thermal plasma (NTP)—could unlock new and selective chemical transformations, but little is known about these states of matter when mixed with reaction media. Read more

Chemically Modified Therapeutic Nucleic Acids for Neurological Diseases

Therapeutic oligonucleotides are unique in targeting mRNA particularly those that cannot be addressed by conventional small molecule drugs or therapeutic antibodies, their potential is growing fast. Read more

Computational modelling of mineral-organic binding in soil

Soils contain large amounts of organic matter (also called “soil organic carbon”). there is three times as much carbon stored in soil than in the atmosphere as CO. Read more

Sciences Research Opportunities at the University of East Anglia

UEA is a top tier, research-led university committed to making a substantial impact on global challenges facing society for over 50 years. Read more

An Interdisciplinary Approach to Developing of Macrocyclic Inhibitors of the MAPK Pathway

Supervisory Team: Prof Ali Tavassoli . Project Description. We are seekign an outstanding chemistry student with an interest in chemical biology to work on a project to develop cyclic peptide inhibitors of a protein-protein interaction that is heavily implicated in the development and growth of tumours. . Read more

Synthesis of anticancer alkaloids

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
Luotonin A is a natural occurring plant alkaloid bearing polycyclic quinazolinone. It has shown inhibitory effect towards topoisomerase I (TP1), an enzyme responsible for antibiotic and anticancer. Read more
