Course summary

The MRes in Advanced Molecular Synthesis course focuses on the challenge of designing molecules and synthesising them in an efficient manner on a meaningful timescale. The ability to do this has the potential to unlock new opportunities to address societal challenges. At present the efficiency and speed of synthesis remain bottlenecks in the development of many compounds for use in fields as diverse as healthcare, agrochemicals, molecular optics and smart materials. This multidisciplinary programme will combine a nine-month project of original research with courses and training in the latest approaches designed to automate, analyse and understand synthetic processes. You will gain a strong understanding of the rational design and efficient synthesis of organic and inorganic compounds alongside the knowledge needed to bridge the current technological gap between academic and industrial research laboratories.

In contrast to MSc programmes, the ethos of the MRes course is to focus on learning through research, as well as interactive workshops and group work based on independent research and critical evaluation. The material will be delivered by academics and industry partners, who are experts in the design and application of synthesis in a modern context.

Graduates can expect to receive training in all of the necessary skills and experience required to apply cutting-edge synthetic approaches in commercial and academic laboratories. The extensive research project is a strong foundation for further study to PhD level. Assessment methods involve the following: Coursework; Dissertation; Oral examination; Presentations; Written examinations and written reports.
