Drochaid announced as partner in Oxicfm (Oxford Inorganic Chemistry for Future Manufacturing)

February 26, 2019

Bob Tooze attended the launch of Oxicfm (Oxford Inorganic Chemistry for Future Manufacturing  http://www.oxicfm.ox.ac.uk)


a new £10.4 million EPSRC centre which will train the next generation of synthesis scientists. Drochaid Research Services are pleased to be a partner in this enterprise and believe this will provide fantastic training opportunities for students in this critical area as well as developing new synthetic methods and functional materials”

Oxicfm is centred in the Department of Chemistry of the University of Oxford, and integrates faculty from the Departments of Materials, Physics and Engineering, both in our training programme and collaborative projects.

They offer a fully-funded four year course comprised of taught courses and a forty-two month substantive research project. Our CDT brings together over forty academics, ten industrial partners (spanning diverse size ranges), and seventeen international centres of excellence in synthetic inorganic chemistry.

The focus is on inorganic synthesis – spanning length scales from molecular to nano-scale and extended materials – and our goal is to equip and enable a new generation of scientists capable of addressing critical societal challenges.
