PhD Positionsin Small Organoboron Emitters at Hector Fellow Academy

  • Phd
  • 31 March 2021

In this project we aim at the synthesis of new chromophores and highly emissive chiral (or achiral) small molecules based on boron and other main group elements. The compounds should find application in bioimaging and OLEDs. The successful applicant will be involved in the synthesis of organoboron emitters, development of synthetic approaches to new classes of compounds and characterization of their optical, chiroptical and electrochemical properties. These studies will be supported by the DFT calculations and X-ray crystallography.
