A New Approach to Ion-Channels: development of aromatic amines chemistry to probe the molecular diversity and the crystalline architectures that result


Project Description

The project builds on a recent discovery of aromatic amines which crystallise into hydrogen bonded hexamers (see reference). In general the project involves a development of this chemistry to probe the molecular diversity and the crystalline architectures that result. In particular molecular tunnels, or potential ion-channels, are sought.

The successful candidate should have, or expect to have, an Honours Degree at 2.1 or above (or equivalent) in Chemistry.
Essential Background: Good degree in Chemistry
Knowledge of: Organic, synthesis, aromatic chemistry, reactive intermediates

Funding Notes

There is no funding attached to this project, it is for self-funded students only
