About the Project

This is a highly collaborative PhD project working at the interface of organic chemistry and catalysis with polymer science and biomaterials. We will be using cutting edge developments in photoredox catalysis for the efficient and green synthesis of polymers and polymer bioconjugates. This will involve developing new catalytic methods for polymerisation using small-molecule models, and the application of these methods to biomaterials such as cellulose.

This project requires a strong MSc or BSc (Honours) degree in chemistry or a related field.

Both domestic and international students are encouraged to apply.
