Future-proofing chemists

ROAR is developing a new approach to training scientists with skills in chemical synthesis, analytical science, automation/robotics, reaction engineering and mathematical/data analysis.

Future-proofing chemists

Analysis

Analytical Tools, sensors, controllers, programming synthesis, data collection and curation

Optimisation

Data-mining, design-of-experiments, parallel experimentation, statistical and multivariate analysis, machine learning

Future-proofing chemists

Technology

Reactor design, flow and batch chemistry, kinetic analysis, transfer processes, process intensification, LCA

Understanding

Kinetic analysis and modelling, identify reactive intermediates, theoretical modelling of reaction pathways

MRes in Advanced Molecular Synthesis

Our MRes in Advanced Molecular Synthesis trains students in designing molecules and synthesising them in an efficient manner on a meaningful timescale. This multidisciplinary programme combines a 9-month project of original research with courses and training in the latest approaches designed to automate, analyse and understand synthetic processes. Through ROAR our students have access to world leading facilities, and an expert training programme.

EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Next Generation Synthesis & Reaction Technology

Starting in 2019, the CDT in Next Generation Synthesis and Reaction Technology is directed by Prof Mimi Hii (Director of ROAR) and will work in close contact with the ROAR facility.

The CDT assembles a multi-disciplinary team of internationally-leading researchers at Imperial College, augmented by recent investments in state-of-the-art infrastructure, equipment and facilities (ROAR, Agilent measurement suite), to produce well-rounded individuals who can tackle challenges of synthesis in the coming decades.

If you want to know more about this CDT, or would like to get involved as either a student or a supervisor, visit the website or contact the director Prof Mimi Hii.
