Summer project on MOF formation 2018

We have guaranteed funding for at least one 6-8 week summer project in 2018 here in Oxford and the possibility to apply for more! Prospective students should be a current undergraduate in Chemistry or a related discipline and show interest in one or more of these topics: chemical kinetics, crystallisation, metal-organic frameworks, X-ray diffraction and in-situ measurements. Deadlines for other funding sources occur early in 2018 so please contact Hamish if interested.

Farewell to Felicity

At the end of last week we bade farewell to our summer student, Felicity Massingberd-Mundy, who has spent the last six weeks doing a research project in the lab. She spent much of her time measuring MOF crystallisations using this cool Raspberry Pi-controlled setup, on loan from Richard Cooper‘s lab where it was made by Katie McInally in her Part II research project two years ago. We’re looking forward to writing up some of her results to publish soon; in the meantime, we wish her all the best and good luck with the rest of her studies!
