Synthetic Chemistry PhD Research Projects for Self-funded Students

We have 165 Synthetic Chemistry PhD Research Projects for Self-funded Students

Pulsed EPR to Study Electronic Structures in f-Block Complexes

An EPSRC DTG-sponsored PhD studentship is available to undertake research in the field of f-element complex synthesis and EPR spectroscopy in a collaborative project between three research groups at Manchester Chemistry. Read more

Chemical evolution of artificial oligonucleotide catalysts for ultra-specific RNA detection and knockdown

Beyond information storage, single-stranded nucleic acids can adopt complex 3D structures with biochemical activities, e.g. antisense oligonucleotides (ASOs), chemical antibodies (aptamers) and catalysts (ribozymes, DNAzymes). Read more

High-throughput solid state synthesis of functional inorganic materials for net zero applications

The discovery of new functional materials to drive technologies for the net zero transition, such as batteries, solar absorbers, rare-earth-free magnets for wind power and a myriad of other unmet needs, is a scientific and societal grand challenge. Read more

Organometallic and Lanthanide Complexes for Upconversion Luminescence

PhD Supervisor. Richard C. Knighton. Project Overview. The aim of the project is to work on state-of-the-art heteropolymetallic architectures (organometallic transition-metal and lanthanide complexes) in the area of two-photon molecular upconversion luminescence, for application as novel bioimaging probes. Read more

EPSRC - Synthesis of Supramolecules to Perform Light-Switchable Quantum Gates

An EPSRC DTG-sponsored PhD studentship is available to undertake research in making supramolecules to perform two-qubit gates by EPR spectroscopy in a collaborative project between three research groups at Manchester Chemistry. Read more

Unlocking intractable drug targets through rational discovery of Molecular Glue Degraders

The majority of high-value drug targets lack a conventional druggable active site and are considered intractable to traditional small molecule drugs (also termed ‘undruggable’), leading to massive investment in alternative drug modalities. Read more

Chemically Modified Therapeutic Nucleic Acids for Neurological Diseases

Supervisory Team:  Afaf El-Sagheer and Matthias Baud. Project description. Therapeutic oligonucleotides are unique in targeting mRNA particularly those that cannot be addressed by conventional small molecule drugs or therapeutic antibodies, their potential is growing fast. Read more

An Interdisciplinary Approach to Developing of Macrocyclic Inhibitors of the MAPK Pathway

Supervisory Team: Prof Ali Tavassoli . Project Description. We are seekign an outstanding chemistry student with an interest in chemical biology to work on a project to develop cyclic peptide inhibitors of a protein-protein interaction that is heavily implicated in the development and growth of tumours. .

[PhD with placement at GSK] Unleashing the Full Potential of Electrosynthesis at Scale: "Go Big or Go Home"

Although oxidation reactions are common in organic chemistry, their implementation on a larger scale is often challenging due to cost and safety concerns associated with the use of large amounts of oxidants. Read more

Organic Synthesis and Self-Assembly of State-Independent Electrolyte Materials

Ideal electrolytes for energy devices such as batteries and solar cells would (i) be lightweight and flexible, (ii) exhibit thermal stability, (iii) be non-volatile (to reduce fire risk), (iv) provide good interfacial contact with electrodes, (v) be amenable to processing and recycling, (vi) have high ionic conductivities, and (vii) be made from cheap, renewable feedstocks. Read more

NERC RED-ALERT CDT PhD project: Synthesis of chemosensor molecules for the detection of PFAS (Perfluoroalkyl substances)

This project is one of a number of projects that are in competition for funding from the Centre for Doctoral Training in Real-Time Digital Water-Based Systems for Environmental Health Protection (RED-ALERT CDT). 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
