About the Project

This research programme involves the design and synthesis of new redox-active polymers with applications in sensing and energy conversion and storage. The programme contains a large component of synthetic organic chemistry relating to monomer and polymer synthesis. The resulting polymers will be characterized using a range of techniques including: gel permeation chromatography, cyclic voltammetry and UV-vis and fluorescence spectroscopy. The sensing, photovoltaic, OLED and Li-ion battery applications of the polymers will also be investigated.

It is the University of Glasgow’s mission to foster an inclusive climate, which ensures equality in our working, learning, research and teaching environment. We strongly endorse the principles of Athena SWAN, including a supportive and flexible working environment, with commitment from all levels of the organisation in promoting gender equality. As an Athena SWAN Bronze Award holder, the School of Chemistry has equality, diversity and inclusion at its heart, and actively supports applications from all sections of society.
