New Reactivity Concepts for Small Molecule Asymmetric Activations
Duration: 4 Years fully funded
Project Ref.: 2017/14-SUE: New Reactivity Concepts for Small Molecule Asymmetric Activations
Deadline: Mar 24, 2017
Description of the project: The goal of this project is to develop new asymmetric C=C and C–H bond activations and their application to simplify the synthesis of complex enantioenriched molecules, which are difficult to synthesized using current methodologies. This project will exploit the catalytic generation of unusual or unprecedented organic/organometallic reactive species able to provide new chemical reactivity and new disconnection approaches. It is envisaged that these concepts will have broad application in the synthesis of important natural products or therapeutic agents.
Preferred skills or background: Master Degree in Organic/Organometallic Chemistry, which must be completed by the time of enrolment in the PhD programme in September 2017. Strong commitment to scientific research and good command of English
