We have 31 supramolecular PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

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.

Design and study of modified peptide foldamers

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

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

Mechanochemistry with mechanical bonds

Any force developed at the macroscopic scale can induce dramatic changes at the molecular scale, even breaking covalent bonds.[1] Indeed, mechanical force is a formidable source of energy that, with its ability to distort, bend and stretch chemical bonds, is unique in its ability to promote reaction pathways that are otherwise inaccessible to traditional methods of activation.

Self-assembled sensors for bio-signalling molecules

In this multi-discplinary project involving organic synthesis, coordination chemistry, biological chemistry, photophysics and electrochemistry , transition metal-templated self-assembly will be used to construct supramolecular structures intended to act as hosts and electrochemical/optical sensors for biological signalling models. Read more

Mechanochemistry and the mechanical bond – sustainable methods for the synthesis of functional rotaxanes and catenanes

Background. Molecules are mechanically bonded if they are composed of two covalent subcomponents that are threaded through one another such that they can never separate even though there is no covalent bond between them. 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.

Dynamic behaviours of metal-organic frameworks and their guests

Self-funded applicants are invited to join our vibrant research community at the University of Birmingham's School of Chemistry for a PhD position focused on functional Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). Read more

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.

Synergistic Experimental and Data-driven Catalyst Development for Sustainable Synthesis

The Thomas Group in collaboration with GSK and Dr Ephrath Solel Moroshko are now recruiting a motivated PhD student to develop a new method for the discovery and application of sustainable catalysis. Read more
