Summary on Grant Application Form
The requested funds are forthe purchase of a new400 MHz NMR spectrometer with high throughput capabilities to underpin current research acitivity and allow the development of several new research projects. The current facilities for organic chemists are notable to meet the future requirements. The new research projects are: (a) Synthesis and screening of natural and novel antibioticJanticanceragents; (b) new methodologiesfororganicsynthesis(includingtelescoped oxidation processes, new chiral diamine ligands and new ways of generating radicals; (c) Catalysis and clean organic chemistry (including catalytically active ionicliquids; silicon-supported guanidines and new oxidation catalysts) and (d) supramolecular and biological organ icchemistry (including functional models of meta lloenzymes, supramoleculardendrimer chemistry, nanotechnology and a combinatorial approach to glycoconjugates). Several proposals are linkedto funded research programmes while others represent new initiatives.
