Mechanisms in organometallic chemistry and homogeneous catalysis

Homogeneous catalysis by transition metal complexes plays an important role in many significant industrial processes. Understanding the mechanisms underlying these reactions is key to improving catalytic activity and selectivity to enhance overall process efficiency. Read more

Ruthenium-catalysed C-H late stage functionalisation of biologically active compounds

This project will involve work in the catalytic C–H activation area. While C−H activation has the potential to revolutionize synthetic chemistry, by allowing access to complex structures by functionalization of the ubiquitous C−H bonds, several important challenges still remain for this potential to be realized.

Lanthanide and actinide redox chemistry as a tool to study covalency

Redox chemistry is an intrinsic property of every element, and while transition metal oxidation/reduction (redox) chemistry is fundamental to life, the redox chemistry of many of the f-elements is underdeveloped. Read more

Earth-Abundant First Row Transition Metal Catalysis for Diverse Alcohol Functionalization

Dr Louis Morrill (https://www.cardiff.ac.uk/people/view/69691-morrill-louis) is looking for a PhD student to work on the research project “Earth-Abundant First Row Transition Metal Catalysis for Diverse Alcohol Functionalization”. Read more

PhD in Optoelectronic Materials or Photocatalysis

Members of the Zysman-Colman group conduct research at the interface of organic or organometallic optoelectronic materials, physical organic, and supramolecular chemistry. Read more

Trifluoromethylation using Copper-based Reagents and Catalysts (co-funded by Syngenta)

The late-stage incorporation of fluorine into drug or agrochemical targets is highly desirable due to the unique pharmacological properties conferred by fluorine such as enhanced lipophilicity, bioavailability, and metabolic stability. Read more

PhD studentship in Catalytic Fluorine Shuttling

Applications are invited for a fully funded 3.5-year postgraduate studentship to develop new catalytic methods to shuttle fluorine atoms or fluorine containing groups between organic molecules. Read more

Asymmetric catalysis using environmentally benign calcium complexes

Dr Ben Ward http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/people/view/38527-ward-benjamin is looking for a PhD student to work on the research project ’Asymmetric catalysis using environmentally benign calcium complexes’. Read more

Synthesis of Carbon-rich Molecular Materials

New carbon-rich molecular materials, based on well-defined nanographenes and other novel polyaromatic architectures, will be rationally synthesised to better understand structure-property relationships. Read more
