Project description

Clandestine 'cooks' synthesising illegal drugs are always on the lookout for methods of manufacture that use chemicals that are readily available and not controlled. To this end they are constantly examining new methodologies and starting materials that can be utilised for synthesis. We have investigated many of these pathways to gain a more thorough understanding of reagents used, reaction conditions, by-products formed as well as potentially new synthetic approaches. Projects in this area will continue these investigations.

Assumed knowledge

Organic Chemistry at second year level

Note: You need to register interest in projects from different supervisors (not a number of projects with the one supervisor).
You must also contact each supervisor directly to discuss both the project details and your suitability to undertake the project.
