Chemistry PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students in Birmingham

We have 52 Chemistry PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students in Birmingham

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

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

PhD Studentship in the atomistic dynamics of mechanochemical reactivity

Applications are sought for a fully funded 3.5-year PhD position in the group of Dr Adam Michalchuk in the School of Chemistry at the University of Birmingham to start Oct. 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

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

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

Low-valent Group-1 Metal Complexes Synthesis, Structures, Reactivity

Interested in synthetic organometallic chemistry, sustainable catalysis and energy storage? This is a great opportunity to create a new horizon of the most common, yet poorly understood metals. Read more

Glycan sensing technology for early and accurate cancer diagnosis

The Mendes group ( in the School of Chemical Engineering, University of Birmingham welcomes applications from prospective PhD students to conduct work in the area of glycan sensing technology for cancer diagnosis. Read more

Synthesis of Metal-Organic Frameworks Using Rotaxane-based Ligands.

The PhD project will focus on the preparation of metal-organic frameworks (MOF) using rotaxane-based ligands. In particular, the project will demonstrate how rotaxane motion affects the adsorption of guest molecules in MOFs. Read more

PhD studentship in in situ imaging and diffraction of dual-phase zeolite composites for nuclear waste remediation.

Applications are sought for a PhD project under the supervision of Dr Phoebe Allan at the University of Birmingham, Dr Sharif Ahmed and Dr Joe Hriljac at Diamond Light Source, and Dr Tom Carey at the National Nuclear Laboratory. Read more
