Project/Grant title

“Sustainable, photochemical transformations with diazo reagents as a source of reactive intermediates”

Job description

Applications are invited for a post-doc position in a research grant “Sustainable, photochemical transformations with diazo reagents as a source of reactive intermediates” funded by the National Science Centre, Poland. Successful candidates will work in the Sustainable Chemistry Group under the supervision of Prof. Dorota Gryko.

Drawing inspiration from photosynthesis, we challenged the use of visible light for the activation of organic molecules and the discovery unknown solar-driven transformations. Plethora of organic compounds have been investigated in terms of their photochemical activity. The fact that diazo compounds possess their intrinsic chromophore (-C=N+=N) puts them in a unique position among many reagents that can absorb visible light and hence are suitable for solar-driven transformations.

The main objective of this proposal is to unveil general reactivity modes of diazo compounds under visible light-irradiation. We will develop their solar-driven reactions and determine reactive intermediates (singlet or triplet carbenes, radicals, others) generated during these processes.

Job description

In this project, we focus on the rational design and synthesis of innovative organic architectures – nanographenes, (consisting of D-π-A structure) with positive or negative Gaussian curvature. Furthermore, the goal of the project is to develop an efficient and inexpensive methodology for nanographenes synthesis. In addition, great emphasis will be put on studying the correlation between electronic structure of nanographenes and their photophysical properties, using theoretical (DFT calculations) as well as experimental (NMR, UV-vis-NIR, emission, CV) approaches. Advanced low-temperature photophysical measurements will be then performed to identify compounds with the highest photoactivity in both, solution and solid state. Nanographenes will be employed in ultimate task to fabricate TADF OLED devices and identify their emissive throughput and stability.

Key responsibilities include:

  • Carrying out the synthetic project.

Job description

In recent years a novel circuit element called memristor is introduced whose conductivity in present depends on the history of electronic current passed through it in the past. A memristor is a device which can be used for in-memory processing, therefore, highly valuable for reducing the processing energy and elevating the processing speed by bypassing von Neumann bottleneck, i.e. CPU-memory data transfer. Currently, most of the known memristors are based on balk materials, often oxides of metals. A few molecular memristors are known which are either slow to respond, built on the basis of precious metals, or too unlikely to be fabricated due to complicated preparation processes. We aim to design, synthesize, and perform measurements on all-organic molecular memristors. A notable part of the design is already taken care of. However, still a lot is remained to be explored. In particular, we need to perform non-equilibrium Green’s function computations to compare transmission properties of a huge number of molecules in detail. The successful candidate will work in close collaboration with a dynamic team of organic chemists, theoretical chemists, and solid-state physicists. In our group you witness how the molecules you make, can make a difference in human life.
