About This PhD Project

Project Description

This interdisciplinary project will involve the synthesis of twisted polyaromatic hydrocarbons with functionality suitable for organic solar cells and energy storage applications.

The applicant will synthesise advanced new molecular materials and study their optoelectronic properties with a range of tools including electrochemistry, spectroscopy and computational methods.

The project will require skills primarily in synthetic chemistry and new materials will be studied using advanced electrochemical, spectroscopic and computational tools. The candidate will be provided with full training in all new techniques.

Entry requirements

Applicants should have, or expect to achieve, at least a 2:1 Honours degree (or equivalent) in Chemistry or Natural Sciences and should have an interest or skills in organic synthetic chemistry.

A relevant Master's degree and / or experience in one or more of the following will be an advantage: Chemistry, physics or natural sciences.
