About the Project
We recently reported the total synthesis of two key FFAs,(3) therefore establishing practicable synthetic routes to the remaining members of this family of natural products. In this collaborative project, the successful candidate will complete the total synthesis of the remaining members of this group of natural products, validate the current state-of-the-art measurement methodology with our analytical colleagues, and then further examine the role the FFAs play in human health.
The PhD candidate will receive an excellent training platform in organic & analytical chemistry in our new state-of-the-art laboratories here at Loughborough. Importantly, the candidate will be immersed in a collaborative project delivering IMPACT with research outcomes that fit with the "Health and Wellbeing Challenge" at Loughborough University.
