Research in the area of organic synthesis is largely focused on the development of novel synthetic methods, the elucidation of their mechanisms and the application to target synthesis, most often either natural products or bioactive compounds of pharmaceutical or agrochemical significance; particular areas of current interest are in heterocyclic synthesis, both saturated and heteroaromatic, aimed at defining new methods for the highly efficient and catalytic generation of such compounds, involving new heterogeneous catalysts or microwave activation in flow systems and the application of novel rearrangement reactions or radical chemistry; a particularly strong theme is the formation of such compounds by the electrophile-driven addition of nucleophiles to unsaturated carbon-carbon bonds.
Good Honours degree or equivalent in chemistry or a related subject; applicants whose 1st language is not English are required to pass IELTS (6.5) or TOEFL exams.
