Project Description

Carbon-based polymers are ubiquitous. From textiles, to electronics, to packaging, to banknotes, to structural materials, we see and use these daily. Substituting the carbon elements with other earth abundant main-group elements, such as silicon, nitrogen, phosphorus, sulfur or oxygen, will create materials with modified properties (e.g. strength, flexibility, conductivity, solubility, etc.) and will lead to unrealized applications. We are interested in exploring ways to make new inorganic polymers- ideally those that do not result in the elimination of toxic byproducts or large amounts of salt.

Background: MSc, BSc(Hons) or equivalent and experience in synthetic chemistry is desired.

Funding Notes

The projects are intended for self-funded PhD students and students who are eligible for the general scholarships offered by the University of Auckland; see
