Synthetic Chemistry PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for UK Students in Birmingham

We have 10 Synthetic Chemistry PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for UK Students in Birmingham

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 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

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

Glycan sensing technology for early and accurate cancer diagnosis

The Mendes group (https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/research/healthcare-technologies/research/nanoengineering-surface-chemistry/index.aspx) 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

Sustainable processes – reducing single use plastics in healthcare

The burden of medical plastic waste has become an increasingly pressing concern in recent years. The healthcare industry relies heavily on single-use plastic items due to their convenience and hygiene factors, but this has led to a significant environmental problem. Read more

Degradable and sustainable polymers in the Environment

The influence of plastic pollution on our environment has been well documented, however, there remains a knowledge gap between relating to how new polymers and plastics might biodegrade. 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

Development of a DNA amplification-free assay for pathogen detection

Applications are invited for a funded PhD position in the School of Chemistry at the University of Birmingham. The School of Chemistry is keen to achieve a gender and diversity balance across the School and welcomes applicants from all backgrounds. Read more

Developing the next generation of broad-spectrum antiviral polymers

Applications are invited for a funded PhD position in the School of Chemistry at the University of Birmingham. The School of Chemistry is keen to achieve a gender and diversity balance across the School and welcomes applicants from all backgrounds. Read more
