Realising the Potential of Earth-abundant Metal Catalysis.

Background. Transition metal catalysts play a key role in the synthesis of pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and modern materials. Currently, this area is dominated by the use of expensive and rare platinum group metals such as ruthenium, rhodium and palladium. Read more

Tailoring Unspecific Peroxygenases for the Green Oxygenation of Agrochemical Intermediates

The closing date for this project is 9 July 2021. However, if a suitable candidate is found before this date, then the position will be offered and no further applications will be considered. Read more

Organocatalytic cyclic carbonate synthesis

Project Description. Previous work from the North group has resulted in the development of highly active metal-based catalysts for the addition of CO2 to epoxides resulting in the formation of cyclic carbonates. Read more

Catalyst development for the reaction between CO2 and aziridines

Project Description. Previous work from the North group has resulted in the development of highly active catalysts for the addition of CO2 to epoxides resulting in the formation of cyclic carbonates. Read more

Nutrient-Mediated Delivery of ‘Dual Warhead’ Antimicrobials

Background. Microbial resistance to antibiotics is a growing problem. Until recently, antibiotics of the fluoroquinolone-type provided some of the most active broad-spectrum antibacterial agents on the market. Read more

Nucleophile Induced Cyclisation/Expansion (NICE) cascade reactions

The aim of this project is to develop a series of conceptually new reactions to make nitrogen-containing medium/macrocyclic rings, directly from linear precursors via novel cascade reactions. Read more

Metal-mediated chemical protein modification

Chemically modified proteins can be used to understand, treat, and diagnose disease. However, relatively few chemical reactions can be used to modify proteins, severely limiting the diversity and applications of new technologies. Read more
