About the Project
The work will involve the synthesis and characterisation of paramagnetic helicenes and helicene-transition metal complexes for investigations into the origins of the Chiral-Induced Spin Selectivity (CISS). In this newly discovered phenomenon, enantiopure chiral materials act as electron spin filters at room temperature. CISS has been implicated in a diverse array of research fields, including: spintronics (electronics which make use of electron spin as well as charge), biology (protein electron transport) and the generation of carbon-neutral fuels (through the more efficient generation of hydrogen from water).
The post holder will focus on synthetic chemistry, but will also take part in exciting multidisciplinary work with collaborators in computational chemistry, physics and the material sciences.
The application deadline is 11pm (British Summer Time) on Sunday, 02/08/2020 and the position is available for October 2020.
