Offer Description

The Ph.D thesis will be devoted to synthesis, spectroscopic measurements, computational interpretation, and crystal structure determination of chiral rhenium and rhodium complexes of potent anticancer and antibacterial activity. The rising role of chiral molecules in pharmacy and chemistry imposes the use of structural, physicochemical, and chiroptical spectroscopy tools to characterize enantiopure compounds. Chiroptical spectroscopies: Vibrational and Electronic Circular Dichroism (VCD and ECD) will be the main techniques of the studies. Moreover, UV-Vis, fluorescence, and IR spectra of the selected chiral ligands and new chiral Re/Rh complexes will be measured, and the interpretation of all spectroscopic data will be based on the quantum-chemical calculations. The chiral Re/Rh complexes will be original because of new enantiopure organic ligands used for synthesis, which will be synthesized in Prof. Robert Kawęcki’s Organic Chemistry Department of Siedlce University.
