General information

Reference : UMR7178-FLODIE-002
Workplace : STRASBOURG
Date of publication : Monday, August 05, 2019
Scientific Responsible name : Loïc CHARBONNIERE
Type of Contract : PhD Student contract / Thesis offer
Contract Period : 36 months
Start date of the thesis : 1 October 2019
Proportion of work : Full time
Remuneration : 2 135,00 € gross monthly

Description of the thesis topic

The thesis will be devoted to the development of new uranium complexes with low oxydatioon states and to their potential applications to homogeneous catalysis. The PhD student will have to master new synthesis under controlled atmospheres and to study the physico-chemical (potentiometry, electrochemistry) and spectroscopic properties (NMR, UV-Vis absorption, luminescence) of the newly developed complexes. Ultimately, the properties of the complexes will be studied within the frame of homogeneous catalysis.

Expected skills :
- Strong knowledge in organic chemistry and basic characterization (NMR, IR, mass spectrometry)
- Strong knowledge in inorganic chemistry and basic characterization
- English speaking and writting
- Bibliographic research
- Spectroscopy (absorption and emission of fluorescence)
- Notions of NMR of paramagnetic compounds and/ot catalysis are strongly welcome

Work Context

The work will take place in the team of Synthesis for analysis of the pluridisciplinary institute Hubert Curien (IPHC, UMR 7178) situated on the CNRS campus of Cronenbourg, close to Strasbourg (France). The student will be linked to the doctoral school of chemistry of the University of Strasbourg (ED 222) and will have to obey the rules of the doctoral school. He/she will be supervised by the responsible of the team, Dr Loïc Charbonnière, specialized in the coordination chemistry of f elements.

Constraints and risks

The work will be financed by a scientific collaboration contract with an industrial partner and bimonthly reports will have to be prepared, in addition to annual meeting with the partner.
