Activation of Carbon Dioxide to the synthesis of Biologically Relevant Molecules

  • Full or part time
  • Application Deadline
    Friday, July 31, 2020
  • Self-Funded PhD Students Only
    Self-Funded PhD Students Only

Project Description

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.
