About the Project
Imperial College London has pioneered the reductive chemistry of advanced carbons, including both nanotubes and graphene-related materials, for dissolution, processing and functionalization (see this recent review - Shaffer et al, Chem. Rev. 2018, 118, 7363−7408 - https://pubs.acs.org/doi/pdfplus/10.1021/acs.chemrev.8b00128?src=recsys). The project will develop and exploit this state-of-the-art chemistry to improve the performance of carbon and hybrid anodes for sodium ion batteries.
Applicants should have a keen interest and solid background in carbon-based materials, such as carbon nanotubes or graphene, and their application in electrochemical energy storage. Experience of air-sensitive chemistry, polymer synthesis, or electrochemical characterisation will be an advantage. Applications are invited from candidates with (or who expect to gain) a first-class honours degree or an equivalent degree in Chemistry, Materials, Engineering or a related discipline.
The studentship will be supervised by Prof Milo Shaffer, co-supervised by Prof Mary Ryan, and will collaborate closely with Prof Magda Titrici. Informal enquiries and requests for additional information for this post can be made to: Prof Milo Shaffer via email: [Email Address Removed]
