Natural Product Synthesis

Project Summary. This PhD studentship will be focused on the biomimetic total synthesis of complex natural products. The chemical feasibility of proposed biosynthetic pathways towards biologically active diterpene structures will be investigated. Read more

The Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership

 The Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) programme is a 4-year DPhil*/PhD programme that aims to equip a new generation of researchers with the skills and knowledge needed to tackle the most important challenges in bioscience research. Read more

“Staggarenes” – synthesis of new extended aromatic materials (CAMMIDGEA_U23SF)

Extended aromatic systems are crucial organic materials and the general class includes discrete materials such as fullerenes through to high order 2D (graphene) and curved (e.g. Read more

A mechanism-led approach to reaction prediction

Background. The ab initio prediction of chemical behaviour has long been a holy grail for synthetic chemists as it will allow the targeting of the most efficient pathways to prepare high value commodity compounds. Read more

Supramolecular sensors for neurotransmitters

Neurological diseases are a leading cause of disability worldwide. Neurotransmitters (e.g. dopamine) are key molecules in neuronal communication, making their detection and quantification vital for medical diagnostics and therapeutics. Read more

Using novel ferronucleosides to study and regulate DNA replication in cells

Background. Replication of nucleic acid polymers like DNA is an essential process for all known forms of life. Furthermore, dysregulation and errors in DNA-replication are strongly linked with human diseases including cancer, as well as the process of cellular ageing. Read more

Exploring bacterial enzymes as new targets for treating infectious disease

The Ferrier Institute has established a world-class reputation in nature-inspired synthetic carbohydrate chemistry and analysis and has extended its expertise into the areas of synthetic and chemical biology, chemical immunology, and natural product isolation. Read more

Development of manufacturing methods for scale up of novel structural battery architectures.

Current structural batteries research, as part of ongoing AAPS/GKN PhD projects, has identified that current state of the art carbon fibre structural battery architectures need to be revised as using a layered approach places too much physical distance between anode and cathode which slows ion transfer and reduces battery performance.

Visible-Light Photoredox Catalysis for the Functionalisation of Complex Organic Molecules

A 3.5-year PhD studentship is currently available in the Silvi research group and the recruitment process is officially opened for to fill the vacant position as soon as possible. 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.

Computational Modelling of Organic Reaction Mechanisms

Loughborough University has seen 94% of our research impact rated as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’, underlining the wide-ranging positive impacts that our research has on the world (REF, 2021). Read more
