About the Project
In this project you will create new types of mechanophores to explore unusual reactivity patterns under tension. You will investigate their activation both in solution, using ultrasounds, and in the solid-state by mechanical stretching, and explore their properties. This project could lead to the development of self-healing materials and to the creation of chemical systems able to perform complex synthetic tasks.
You will be trained in synthetic organic, polymer, and supramolecular chemistry.

We expect the PhD to start in April or September 2019.
Applicants should have or expect a good II(i) honours degree (or an equivalent degree) in Chemistry or Polymer Chemistry. An experience in synthetic organic chemistry, synthetic polymer chemistry or supramolecular chemistry is a plus.
