MSc by research: Synthesis of Redox-Active Macrocycles via Successive Ring Expansion

University of York Department of Chemistry

Full time & Part time Any Month MSc 1 year research plus 3 months writing up

About the course

This project will be supervised by Dr William P. Unsworth and Dr Luke A. Wilkinson.

Project Description

Interest in macrocycles has grown enormously in the last decade, in significant part due to their favourable properties in supramolecular chemistry. For example, some macrocycles can act as hosts for specific guest molecules and act as chemical sensors,1 while others have been used as catalysts,2 mimicking the active site of enzymes.3 There is also burgeoning interest in the synthesis of redox active macrocycles, as the redox state can control the supramolecular properties of the molecule and generate new modes of activity in catalysis or host-guest chemistry.4 Furthermore, there is significant interest in the development of cyclic molecular wires, as the multiple pathways for electron
