Project Description

The project involves the synthesis and chemistry of mechanically interlocked systems featuring macrocyclic “pincer” ligands, currently being developed in the Chaplin group. These interlocked supramolecular systems will be used to study the fundamental organometallic chemistry of C–H bond activation and alkane dehydrogenation reactions. Work will entail a range of practical work including, ligand orientated organic synthesis and the manipulation and characterisation of reactive organometallic metal species under an inert atmosphere


Further information about the Chaplin group can be found at:
http://go.warwick.ac.uk/chaplingroup

Requirements:
Applicants should have (or be about to receive) an honours degree (at least II.1 or equivalent) in chemistry. Practical experience in synthetic supramolecular and/or organometallic chemistry is highly desirable.

How to apply:
Enquires and informal applications should include a C.V and be made as soon as possible to Dr Adrian Chaplin ([email protected]).

APPLICATION DEADLINE: 01/04/2016

Funding Notes

The studentships provide 3.5 years of full funding for UK/EU students.
