Project/Grant title

CO2CHEM – redox-neutral photocatalytic c-h carboxylation of hydrocarbons with co2

Job description

The general goal of this proposal is to develop the synthetic and mechanistic basis for the photocatalytic, redox-neutral C-H carboxylation of saturated hydrocarbons with CO2. To address this challenge, we propose new synthetic strategies based on photocatalytically generated alkyl radicals and earth-abundant metal complexes to provide C-H carboxylation in an overall redox-neutral process.

The project will be realized in strong collaboration with prof. B König from the Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy, University of Regensburg, Germany.

In particular, the main tasks will involve:

– design and synthesis of cobalt-complexes and their evaluation in photo-organo-metal catalysed C-H carbonylation with CO generated in situ;

– investigations on the photo-organo-metal catalysed C-H carbonylation with CO generated in situ;

– mechanistic investigation on the most interesting C-H carboxylations;

– scope and limitation studies;

– preparation of manuscripts.

Project/Grant title

“Chemoenzymatic cascades of new Cu and Pd reactions of significant application potential”

Job description

Currently, an increase in the incidence of cancer is observed, thus it is extremely important to eliminate or limit them. One of types of cancer is multidrug resistant (MDR) solid tumors. This is the subject of COST action CA17104. The key challenge of this action is an identification of a new diagnostic/predictive biomarkers, producing new and safe compounds applicable to personalized treatments of MDR tumors. In order to achieve such goal, we need to design new synthetic protocols providing organic compounds of defined structure, free from any impurities. Therefore, during the realization of project we will study a new type of organic reactions catalyzed by copper salts, which provide molecules of high activity towards MDR. To achieve success, we need to know reaction scope and limitations, reaction mechanisms and optimal conditions for successful synthesis. Since the obtained products will be applied for biological and medical studies by COST specialists, they should be free from impurities including residual metal catalyst. Therefore, in the project special attention will be paid on reaction conditions and catalyst immobilization/inclusion to design experimental procedure providing metal free products.

 

Description of tasks: Analysis of data collected in our team and analysis of literature data. Synthesis of catalysts. Performing catalytic reactions with copper-based catalysts and discovery new catalytic reactions based on data analysis. Preparation of reports and manuscripts.

Project/Grant title

“Chemoenzymatic cascades of new Cu and Pd reactions of significant application potential.”

Job description

Currently, an increase in the incidence of cancer is observed, thus it is extremely important to eliminate or limit them. One of types of cancer is multidrug resistant (MDR) solid tumors. This is the subject of COST action CA17104. The key challenge of this action is an identification of a new diagnostic/predictive biomarkers, producing new and safe compounds applicable to personalized treatments of MDR tumors. In order to achieve such goal, we need to design new synthetic protocols providing organic compounds of defined structure, free from any impurities. Therefore, during the realization of project we will study a new type of organic reactions catalyzed by copper salts, which provide molecules of high activity towards MDR. To achieve success, we need to know reaction scope and limitations, reaction mechanisms and optimal conditions for successful synthesis. Since the obtained products will be applied for biological and medical studies by COST specialists, they should be free from impurities including residual metal catalyst. Therefore, in the project special attention will be paid on reaction conditions and catalyst immobilization/inclusion to design experimental procedure providing metal free products.

Description of tasks: Synthesis of model compounds, application of the obtained compounds to the study of chemoenzymatic cascades of reactions catalysed by copper salts.

“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.

Lider XI project

Number of positions available

1 (12 months)

Researcher profile

R2

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.
  • Evaluation of the basic optical properties of obtained species.
  • Writing full experimental part of the description of results and the first draft of the manuscript as well as the reports.
  • Supervision of MSc-students and PhD-students

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.
