MARIE CURIE TRAINING SITE (Contract HPMT-2000-00200)
HOMOGENEOUS CATALYSIS BY ORGANOMETALLIC COMPLEXES
A training activity, sponsored by the European Union Programme "Improving Human Research Potential and the Socio-Economic Knowledge Base" on Homogeneous Catalysis by Organometallic Compounds is located at the Faculty of Science-ICMA, University of Zaragoza-CSIC.
Doctoral research training fellowships to develop various aspects of Homogeneous Catalysis by Organometallic Compounds are available. Candidates interested in joining this fellowship should choose between the following alternative options:POSTGRADO EN TECNOLOGÍAS LÁSER
El ICMA junto con el Instituto de Investigación en Ingeniería de Aragón (I3A) ha coordinado la propuesta de un Postgrado en Tecnologías Láser que se imparte desde el curso 2004-2005.
Research will be carried out in the context of the current projects of the host group, and will be focused on covering all aspects of catalyst development. This will include conception, design, and synthesis of new catalyst precursors, as well as, reactivity studies, studies under catalytic conditions and detailed kinetic and mechanistic investigations. Current research projects span mono-, di-nuclear and early-late catalysts and catalytic processes, such as functionalisation through C-H activation, hydrogenation, hydrosilylation, enantioselective Diels-Alder reactions, and polymerisation.
Fellows will join a research group conducting studies in Homogeneous Catalysis and Organometallic Chemistry, which also has strong links with many other research groups. We offer supervision by our experience scientific staff, state-of-the art training courses in X-ray diffraction methods, computational chemistry, and NMR, as well as well-equipped laboratories and direct access to instruments, specially NMR spectrometers.
Duration of fellowships: Six months to one academic year. For more information contact Prof. Luis A. Oro. Department of Inorganic Chemistry, University of Zaragoza, 50009 Zaragoza. Spain (e-mail: email@example.com@unizar.es.
