Topic description

Topic: Photoactivatable Small Molecule-Releasable Compounds for Medical Applications.

The prospective student will use organic synthetic and physico-chemical tools to synthesize and study small-molecule releasing photoactivatable compounds. The initial aim will be to develop novel photochemically active carbon monoxide-releasing species for biological and medical applications. The (photo)reaction mechanisms will (can) be investigated using state-of-the-art techniques, such as nanosecond laser flash spectroscopy.
