We have 141 synthetic chemistry PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Technology Enhanced Chemical Synthesis (TECS)

Our PhD programme combines world-leading research in Chemical Synthesis with state-of-the-art training in technology and automation to prepare you for a career in modern synthetic chemistry, whether in industry or academic research. 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

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

Mechanochemical Preparation of Biodegradable Pharmaceuticals

Twin-screw extrusion (TSE) has been demonstrated as an excellent means of industrialising mechanochemistry (instigation of a chemical reaction by mechanical energy, in the absence of solvents), overcoming the barriers involved in batch processing (such as ball milling) such as scalability and reaction temperature control. Read more

Photonics for Net Zero Enabled by Patternable Boron-Phosphide Polymers

The manipulation of light in optoelectronic devices is a cornerstone for the delivery of Net Zero, for example in low-energy optical computing (silicon-photonics) and green hydrogen generation from water (photocatalysis). Read more

Electrochemical investigations of common main-group reducing agents

Over the past decade the field of main-group chemistry has exploded. This has been driven by a general trend to develop compounds and processes that are more cost-effective and environmentally benign. 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

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

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

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

PhD in Chemistry - Taking Crystal Sponges into the Nanoscale Using 3D Electron Diffraction

Bright, highly motivated candidates are invited to apply for a fully funded 3.5 year PhD position in the School of Chemistry, available to commence on 1st October 2024 in the Forgan research group at the University of Glasgow, which will focus on the use of electron diffraction to characterize metal-organic frameworks and probe new applications such as the nanoscale crystal sponge technique. Read more

Tumor-selective metal chelators for multiple theranostic applications

We are seeking strongly motivated and competitive candidates to conduct PhD research as part of an internationally-recognised research team involved in new tumor-selective metal chelators for multiple theranostic applications. Read more
