Course content

Our MRes in Advanced Molecular Synthesis focuses on the challenge of designing molecules and synthesising them in an efficient manner on a meaningful timescale. The ability to do this has the potential to unlock new opportunities to address societal challenges.

At present the efficiency and speed of synthesis remain a bottleneck in the development of many compounds for use in fields as diverse as healthcare, agrochemicals, molecular optics and smart materials.

This multidisciplinary programme will combine a nine-month project of original research with courses and training in the latest approaches designed to automate, analyse and understand synthetic processes.

You will gain a strong understanding of the rational design and efficient synthesis of organic and inorganic compounds alongside the knowledge needed to bridge the current technological gap between academic and industrial research laboratories.

You will have access to the facilities at the recently established 'Dial-a-Molecule' Grand Challenge institute Centre for Rapid Online Analysis of Reactions (ROAR) at our new Molecular Sciences Research Hub (MSRH) at White City.
