Main research areas: analytical and inorganic chemistry: development of non-isotopic immunoassays and multi-analyse optical or electrochemical sensors; structure-fluorescence relationships, design of new fluorescence labels and probes; aspects of flow injection analysis; electro-analytical chemistry; synthesis and spectroscopic study of phenylene-mercurials and of substituted triptycenes incorporating antimony, silicone, arsenic and bismuth atoms; kinetics and mechanisms of reactions involving solids; computing methods for crystallography, application of microcomputers to statistics, learning and chemical problems; organic and medicinal chemistry: design and use of new reagents for organic synthesis; synthetic applications based on mechanistic studies of novel reactions; synthetic organic and medicinal chemistry in which target molecules include potential non-addictive analgesics; potential novel liquid crystalline polymers; relationship between chemical composition and morphology of pathogenic yeasts and bacteria and their resistance to chemotherapeutic agents; biochemical pharmacology; physical chemistry.
A good degree (usually 1st or 2.1) in chemistry or a closely related discipline.
