Marta’s paper on tethered N-heterocyclic stannylenes and new rhodium chemistry has been accepted for publication. Well done!
We now have two new 3D printers up and running in the lab! This project is in partnership with Dr Filipe Vilela here at Heriot-Watt University along with other academics across Scotland and is funded by The Scottish Crucible (see earlier posts).
October will be extremely busy as a new post-doc, PhD student and two undergraduate students will be joining the group.
The lab refurbishment is almost finished and the good news is that there are two positions available. Please click on Vacancies if you are interested in doing exciting research in a brand new lab with state-of-the-art equipment!
Coming up tomorrow, a 30 minute chat to chemistry teachers about my research. Potentially a tough crowd!
Reda Ghezzal joins the group (as its first member) as an undergraduate research student over the summer. He’ll be learning the techniques we use in the group and synthesising some organometallic starting materials for use in ligand synthesis reactions.
There is one week left to apply for a PhD position in the joint CRITICAT centre for doctoral training between St. Andrews, Heriot-Watt and Edinburgh Universities. Please see the vacancies page for more details. This promises to be a fantastic opportunity to learn about catalysis from many experts as well as undertake research in a field of vital importance to the future well-being of our planet.
