About the Project

This project will look at the selective modification of compounds to deliver new/non-natural amino acids/peptides. The approach will use a new carboxylation process developed in our group.

The idea being that we can selectively carboxylate amino acids by activating CO2 using our novel electro synthesis technology. You will join a team of PhD and Post-Doctoral researchers working on similar themes.

See Chem. Commun. 2011, 47, 11888, Synlett 2014, 197, Eur. J. Org. Chem. 2015, 474 for the related technology.

All applications are made online, please select the school/department name under the programme name section and include the quote reference number.
Entry Requirements
A relevant Master's degree and / or experience in one or more of the following will be an advantage: Experience in electrochemistry or organic synthesis would be an advantage but not necessary as training will be provided.
