Soft & Crystalline Composite Materials: Developing Total Scattering Workflows for the Interrogation of Structure.

An exciting interdisciplinary project for an enthusiastic student to develop a broad range of expertise, combining the experimental and computationally-based characterisation of advanced composite materials. Read more

New reaction strategies using gold catalysis

Gold catalysis represents one of the most vibrant and widely applicable fields of catalysis and in this project we will be exploring how catalyst design can be used to influence reaction pathways to gain greater control over reactivity. Read more

Degradable and sustainable polymers in the Environment

The influence of plastic pollution on our environment has been well documented, however, there remains a knowledge gap between relating to how new polymers and plastics might biodegrade. Read more

Stereoselective synthesis of mechanically chiral molecules for sensing and catalysis

Background – the stereoselective synthesis of mechanically chiral molecules. The stereoselective synthesis of chiral organic molecules is one of the core challenges in synthetic organic chemistry. Read more

Mechanochemistry and the mechanical bond – sustainable methods for the synthesis of functional rotaxanes and catenanes

Background. Molecules are mechanically bonded if they are composed of two covalent subcomponents that are threaded through one another such that they can never separate even though there is no covalent bond between them. Read more

Synthesis of Metal-Organic Frameworks Using Rotaxane-based Ligands.

The PhD project will focus on the preparation of metal-organic frameworks (MOF) using rotaxane-based ligands. In particular, the project will demonstrate how rotaxane motion affects the adsorption of guest molecules in MOFs. Read more

PhD Studentship in the atomistic dynamics of mechanochemical reactivity

Applications are sought for a fully funded 3.5-year PhD position in the group of Dr Adam Michalchuk in the School of Chemistry at the University of Birmingham to start Oct. Read more

Probing Astrochemical Reactions with Laser Spectroscopy

The study of chemistry occurring in low temperature environments, such as those in the interstellar medium, is an excellent test of our understanding of the governing forces in molecular interactions and reactive collisions. Read more

PhD in Predicting the environmental degradation of plastics

Understanding how plastics and polymers degrade in the environment is an important sustainability target. Our work in this area uses innovative analytical techniques and simulated environments to understand how specific plastics degrade in different environments. Read more

Development of a DNA amplification-free assay for pathogen detection

Applications are invited for a funded PhD position in the School of Chemistry at the University of Birmingham. The School of Chemistry is keen to achieve a gender and diversity balance across the School and welcomes applicants from all backgrounds. Read more
