PhD in Sustainable Organic Chemistry and Homogeneous Catalysis
The Clarke group’s research is focused on greener organic chemistry, homogeneous catalysis and asymmetric synthesis. The majority of projects involve the synthesis and application of new catalysts in clean transformations.
A single studentship may be available with several possible theses topics; these range from development of asymmetric manganese catalysis through to developing novel Metal Organic Frameworks for enantioselective catalysis.
Most funding available cannot cover the higher cost of overseas fees, so most positions are for UK and EU students. See funding notes for exceptions to this and further information.
