Realising the Potential of Earth-abundant Metal Catalysis.

Background. Transition metal catalysts play a key role in the synthesis of pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and modern materials. Currently, this area is dominated by the use of expensive and rare platinum group metals such as ruthenium, rhodium and palladium. Read more

New Metal-Catalysed Methods for C-H Activation Processes

A fully funded, industry-linked, PhD Studentship is available in the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, under the collaborative supervision of Dr David M. Read more

Tuned Iridium Catalysts to Deliver an Array of Synthetic Efficiency and Selectivity

A fully-funded, industry-linked, PhD Studentship is available in the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, under the collaborative supervision of Professor William J. Read more

Sustainable Catalysis for Alkene C-H Activation and Functionalisation

Project Summary. This exciting collaboration between the Thomas group, Garden group and Johnson Matthey will develop sustainable catalysis for alkene C-H activation reactions with direct relevance to kilotonne industrial processes. Read more

Trifluoromethylation using Copper-based Reagents and Catalysts (co-funded by Syngenta)

The late-stage incorporation of fluorine into drug or agrochemical targets is highly desirable due to the unique pharmacological properties conferred by fluorine such as enhanced lipophilicity, bioavailability, and metabolic stability. Read more

The Development of Artificial Metalloenzymes

Background. As natural biocatalysts, enzymes have evolved over billions or years to be highly efficient and selective. Their application in both bioconversions and chemical syntheses is attractive because of their sustainability and environmental compatibility. 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

Earth-Abundant First Row Transition Metal Catalysis for Diverse Alcohol Functionalization

Dr Louis Morrill (https://www.cardiff.ac.uk/people/view/69691-morrill-louis) is looking for a PhD student to work on the research project “Earth-Abundant First Row Transition Metal Catalysis for Diverse Alcohol Functionalization”. Read more
