Project Description

Microporous polymers are a class of porous material made from organic building blocks possessing high surface areas and chemical stability. Due to the combination of these desirable properties they have been investigated for applications in the areas of energy and sustainability including gas capture, storage and separations, heterogeneous and photo-catalysis as well as batteries and supercapacitors.

Your project will combine the design and synthesis of novel microporous polymers with and analytical structural characterisation. This project aims to synthesise novel microporous polymers targeted for applications in the fields of energy and sustainability. You will use a variety of polymerisation techniques to make novel microporous polymers incorporating new functionalities improve their performance. You will characterise these materials using a range of solid state techniques including gas sorption analysis and solid state NMR and work closely in a group of researchers from around the world.

Funding Notes

This is a self-funded project. The applicant should have or expect to gain at least an upper second class degree, or equivalent overseas qualification, in a relevant subject.

If you have the correct qualifications and access to your own funding, either from your home country or your own finances, your application to work with this supervisor will be considered.
