(Dual Award) Cysteinolic Acid Metabolism in Marine Algae and its Fate in Humans

An exciting new Chemical Biology PhD opportunity exists to discover new pathways for the degradation of sulfur-containing marine metabolites and enzymes for their utilization in humans. Read more

Computational Studies of Main Group Clusters as Catalysts in Organic Synthesis

The industrial production of chemicals accounts for £34 Bn within the UK manufacturing sector, and up to 90% of chemical products require the use of a catalyst at some point in their preparation. Read more

Biocatalytic synthesis of deuterium-stabilised pharmaceuticals (sponsored by AstraZeneca)

A fully-funded PhD studentship is available for an outstanding and ambitious chemist to undertake research in the field of biotechnology and pharmaceutical chemistry in a collaborative project between the Future Biomanufacturing Research Hub and AstraZeneca. Read more

(EPSRC DTG) Metal-Organic Frameworks for Clean Air: A comprehensive EPR study

Ammonia (NH. 3. ) and nitrogen dioxide (NO. 2. ) are harmful air pollutants due to their highly corrosive and toxic nature. One strategy to mitigate air pollution is to use porous materials that are capable to adsorb and further convert these atmospheric pollutants into useful chemicals for industry. Read more

Application of -hole interactions within organocatalysis

The objective of this project is to carry out a thorough computational study leading to the understanding the catalytic potential of the chalcogen/pnictogen bonding donating catalysts as well as the mechanisms involved to facilitate the predictive design and further development of s-hole-bonding-based enantioselective transformations.

Electrified and Nanoconfined Enzymes: The Electrochemical Leaf

A funded PhD studentship is available in the group of Dr Clare F Megarity at the University of Manchester, for an ambitious candidate interested in a brand-new way to study and exploit enzyme catalysis using a powerful electrochemical platform called The Electrochemical Leaf (e-Leaf). 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.

f-block metal-metal bonds for on/off giant spin control

This research project will focus on the development of f-block (lanthanide and actinide) molecules which exploit secondary coordination sphere binding, and weak metal-ligand bonding motifs to tether bi- and multi-metallic systems together and ultimately isolate single- and multi-electron metal-metal bonds. Read more

Lanthanide Silica Based Chelates for Molecular Upconversion

Upconversion of near infra-red light to visible light mediated by lanthanide ions is rapidly emerging as an important phenomenon with many applications in materials and biological sciences, including quantum sensing technologies, solar cells, IR quantum counters and biomedical imaging, amongst others.
