This position is fully funded by the UCL-A*STAR Collaborative Programme via the Centre for Doctoral Training in Molecular Modelling and Materials Science (M3S CDT) at UCL.
  Synthesis and functional studies of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) derived from high oxidation state metal ions
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Nayak, Dr K Afarinkia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal-organic frameworks or MOFs are a class of porous materials made of metal ions and rigid organic linkers which are known secondary building units or SBUs.
  Computational design of bio-inspired silica materials for carbon capture
  Dr M Jorge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Materials that are porous at the nanoscale are used in a wide variety of applications, like gas separation, carbon capture, catalysis and drug delivery.
  Two-dimensional layered materials as catalysts for fine chemical production
  Dr C D'Agostino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catalysts are substances that can speed up chemical reactions and/or increase reaction selectivity without consuming themselves. Relative to non-catalytic processes, catalysed reactions perform through more energy efficient routes, in which reactants are able to be used more efficiently.
