Course summary

The Department benefits from online subscriptions to a vast number of primary research journals and access to online databases to facilitate your literature searching. As part of your research training, you will be encouraged to attend conferences and present your results both within the Department and externally.

Overview

Join us and you’ll be based in a state-of-the art environment that has a strong focus on novel interdisciplinary research. This is carried out by a set of inter-related groups specialising in:

  • Energy and Catalysis
  • Materials Chemistry
  • Medicinal and Bio-nano Chemistry
  • Functional Interfaces
  • Theoretical and Computational Chemistry.

These groups carry out cutting-edge research in fast-moving fields such as nanotechnology and drug design. Often this involves collaboration with colleagues in other fields such as Biology, Materials Science and Physics.

As a postgraduate student you’ll be fully involved in our research activity. This will bring you into contact not only with new concepts, but also our prestigious partners, in academia, industry and research, worldwide.

Some illustrative titles of recent PhD theses are:

• Synthesis and applications of metal (IV) phosphates, phosphonates and their analogues in oxidation reactions using hydrogen peroxide

• The self-assembly of nanostructured gold dithiol systems

• The synthesis of nucleotide analogues using the Michaelis-Arbuzov Reaction

• Pulsed reaction studies of simple reactions on alumina supported rhodium

• Inhibitors of alpha-methylacyl-CoAracemase

• New robust and chiralmolecular frameworks.
