Organic Synthesis and Self-Assembly of State-Independent Electrolyte Materials

Ideal electrolytes for energy devices such as batteries and solar cells would (i) be lightweight and flexible, (ii) exhibit thermal stability, (iii) be non-volatile (to reduce fire risk), (iv) provide good interfacial contact with electrodes, (v) be amenable to processing and recycling, (vi) have high ionic conductivities, and (vii) be made from cheap, renewable feedstocks.

New reaction strategies using gold catalysis

Gold catalysis represents one of the most vibrant and widely applicable fields of catalysis and in this project we will be exploring how catalyst design can be used to influence reaction pathways to gain greater control over reactivity. 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

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.

Design and Synthesis of Peptide-derived Receptors for Binding Small Molecules

A PhD studentship is available in the groups of Prof. Scott Cockroft and Dr Annamaria Lilienkampf School of Chemistry, The University of Edinburgh; in collaboration with DSTL. Read more

Development of new retrosynthetic disconnections through radical-nucleophilic substitution

Background. Nucleophilic substitution is arguably the most important class of reaction in organic synthesis. Indeed, these reactions are used every day to synthesise new pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, polymers and natural products. Read more

PhD in Chemistry: Developing innovative organofluorine chemistry

PhD in Chemistry - Developing innovative organofluorine chemistry. Dr Matthew Tredwell is looking for a PhD student to develop innovative organofluorine chemistry. Read more

EPSRC - Light-coupled NMR to design novel photo-driven chemistry and materials

Over the last decade, visible light-driven chemistry has come to the forefront of modern organic synthesis, chemical biology, and materials science, providing a powerful platform through which to rapidly construct new and complex molecules. Read more

Mechanochemical synthesis for sustainable chemical manufacturing

Graduate Teaching Assistantship. This is a Graduate Training Assistantship (GTA), which means that you will be required to do some teaching, particularly lab demonstrating, as part of your training. Read more

PhD in Chemistry: Enhancing organic room-temperature phosphorescence through supramolecular approaches

Dr Yi-Lin Wu - People - Cardiff University is looking for a PhD student to work on the research project “Enhancing organic room-temperature phosphorescence through supramolecular approaches.” The project involves the design and synthesis of triplet-forming organic chromophores and the investigation of their photophysical properties induced by supramolecular interactions. Read more

Synthesis of Carbon-rich Molecular Materials

New carbon-rich molecular materials, based on well-defined nanographenes and other novel polyaromatic architectures, will be rationally synthesised to better understand structure-property relationships. Read more
