Applications are welcome for a self-funded studentship at the School of Chemistry of the University of East Anglia to work in the research group of Dr María Paz Muñoz.


The project aims to develop novel bimetallic catalytic systems using precious or other metals and investigate their activity in allene chemistry. Different combination of metals complexes will be employed to accomplish orthogonal, synergistic or dual catalysis first using known reactions in allene chemistry as benchmark reactions to test the improved activity of the dual versus the single catalyst systems, and then applying them to unprecedented systems towards the synthesis of complex structures in one synthetic operation.


Students must have at least a 2:1 in Chemistry or related discipline or a good Masters degree in Chemistry.


Funding notes


This PhD project is offered on a self-funding basis. It is open to applicants with funding or those applying to funding sources. Details of tuition fees can be found at http://www.uea.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/research-degrees/fees-and-funding.


A bench fee is also payable on top of the tuition fee to cover specialist equipment or laboratory costs required for the research. The amount charged annually will vary considerably depending on the nature of the project and applicants should contact the primary supervisor for further information about the fee associated with the project.
