PhD Project-Thales Nano-Efficient and sustainable synthesis of new chiral ligands for homogeneous catalysis

PhD project at ThalesNano Inc.

Principal Investigator: Dr. Gellert Sipos

PhD Project Title: Efficient and sustainable synthesis of new chiral ligands for homogeneous catalysis

PhD Project description:

Development of sustainable protocols for C-H arylations in the following areas:
• Methodology development using heterogeneous Pd-based catalysts.
• Design and development of homogenous catalytic systems using continuous flow technology with key focus on asymmetric synthesis.
• Multigram synthesis of targeted chiral scaffolds using low Pd-catalyst loadings.

Relevant skills that will be considered are:
 Practical experience in analytical methods (NMR, MS, HPLC)
 Good level of English proficiency (understood, spoken and written)
 Skills in scientific writing (reports, papers, etc.)
 Team spirit and collaborative predisposition
 Desirable extra competences: background in C-H activation / functionalization, catalysis or flow chemistry

Planned secondments: Secondments (2 × 3 months) at CNRS
