You prepare a doctoral thesis in the field of electrochemical C-H functionalization. The selective introduction of functional groups in otherwise inert molecules is necessary to construct more complex molecules, which are of importance for the bulk and fine chemicals industry. Within the research group Advanced Reactor Technology (ART) there is an elaborate knowledge on electrosynthesis (e.g. in the field of C-X splitting). This PhD is a combined PhD with the Department of Chemistry and the Organic Synthesis (ORSY) group of prof. Bert Maes.
You publish scientific articles related to the research project of the assignment.
You contribute to teaching and research in the Faculty of Applied Engineering.
Profile and requirements
You hold a master degree in Chemical engineering, Material science, Chemistry or equivalent.
You can submit outstanding academic results.
Students in the final year of their degree can also apply.
