  A Pd-catalysed cyclisation strategy to chiral nitrogen heterocycles
  Prof JPA Harrity
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have recently devised a novel conjunctive reagent that is generated in the presence of a palladium catalyst, and demonstrated that this can be exploited in the synthesis of chiral heterocyclic products.
  An asymmetric synthesis of atropisomeric functionalised intermediates
  Prof JPA Harrity
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atropisomers are stereoisomers that occur because of hindered rotation about a single bond, and this leads to two or more conformers that interconvert slowly enough to be isolated as single components.
  Artificial blood
  Dr L Twyman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inspired by Nature, we have developed a number of macromolecules that can bind a release oxygen. These have included polyfluorinated micelles, polyion complexes and porphyrin cored polymers.
  Characterisation and quantification of O6-alkylguanine adducts in DNA for clinical assessment of cancer risk
  Dr D Williams
Application Deadline: 5 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Exposure of DNA to alkylating agents can produce alkylated DNA base adducts that induce mutations (base changes) following DNA replication.
  Dispersible Microporous Polymer Particles: A New Platform for Catalysis
  Dr R Dawson, Dr A Haynes
Application Deadline: 5 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microporous polymers are a class of organic porous material with high. surface areas (up to 5000 m2/g) and good thermal and chemical stability.
  Investigating mechanism, reactivity and catalysis in organic, supramolecular and biological chemistry
  Prof NH Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in designing and synthesising organic molecules to investigate the basis of catalysis, and to apply these principles to designing our own, artificial catalysts.
  Macromolecules for drug delivery
  Dr L Twyman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have worked with a number of water soluble polymer systems that are capable of encapsulating and solubilising various hydrophobic drug moieties.
  Mechanisms in organometallic chemistry and homogeneous catalysis
  Dr A Haynes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Metal-organic nanosheets (MONs): Programmable 2D materials for use as sensors, catalysts, membranes and devices
  Dr J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Two-dimensional nanomaterials such as graphene hold enormous potential for use in advanced electronics, energy, separation and composite materials applications.
  Microporous polymers for energy and sustainability
  Dr R Dawson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microporous polymers are a class of porous material made from organic building blocks possessing high surface areas and chemical stability.
