James-Watt Studentships

Prof. Ken McKendrick: 'Probing the surfaces of ionic liquids by reactive-atom scattering'.

The structure of the extreme outer layers of technologically important ionic liquids, their mixtures, and solutions will be probed using reactive-atom scattering, a novel method based on the laser-spectroscopic detection of the gas-phase products of selected reactive projectiles.

Prof. Martin Paterson: 'Computational Studies of Anti-Cancer Photochemistry'.

Computational chemistry of photochemical dynamics and spin-crossover effects vital to photodynamic therapy, used in cancer treatment.
