Polymer synthesis, modelling and electrochemistry for the understanding of electrostatic charging of insulating materials

Publication date:

Dr Katherine B Holt, Dr Hugo Bronstein and Dr Dewi W Lewis

Applications are invited for a 3 year PhD studentship based in the Department of Chemistry, University College London. This multidisciplinary project is focussed on understanding radical formation on polymer surfaces and relating this chemistry to the well-known phenomenon of electrostatic charging that takes place when two materials are rubbed together.

PhD project in Materials Chemistry at University College London

Publication date:

A PhD position is available in Prof. Paul F. McMillan's group in the Chemistry Department at UCL. The project will focus on the synthesis and properties characterisation of single- to few-layered carbon nitride materials.

Porous complexes for the unambiguous structural determination of non-crystalline compounds - use in protein function determination

Publication date:

Professor Claire Carmalt and Professor Derek Tocher

A 4-year BBSRC Industrial CASE studentship with Novartis is available to investigate the use of crystalline metal organic frameworks (MOFs) as a porous matrix into which compounds in solution can be soaked, allowing the molecular structure determination of non-crystalline complexes via single crystal X-ray diffraction. A technology allowing the precise molecular structure determination of any compound (crystalline or not) in low quantities would be one of the holy grails of chemistry; single crystal X-ray diffraction is the ultimate tool to determine the structure of chemical compounds. It allows the chemist to define the stereochemistry of molecules isolated from natural products greatly reducing the time taken to reproduce or mimic compounds used as molecular probes of protein function. However, well-ordered single crystals of suitable quality for X-ray analysis are required, yet many compounds are either not crystalline or only available in minute quantities. The unambiguous structural determination of compounds not amenable to conventional study would provide identification of unknown compounds quickly and with absolute accuracy, as well as gaining information about the adopted conformation of molecules.
