Synthesis of Polarization Agents for Polymer Characterization

Dynamic Nuclear Polarization (DNP) is a powerful technique to dramatically increase solid-state NMR sensitivity thanks to a polarization transfer. In order to develop innovative applications, new polarization agents (PA) are needed. The post-doctoral research fellow will be hired for 18 months to design and to synthetize new PA and to make them compatible with organic polymeric matrix.

The candidate must have a PhD in the field of synthetic organic chemistry and should be able to perform the preparation of a wide range of molecules. In addition, a good understanding of material chemistry and an interest in spectroscopic methods would be appreciated. The person must be curious, have a good sense of contact and a good ability to analyse and summarize. He/she must enjoy working as a team on research projects. He/she must also have a pronounced taste for experimentation.

Working environment
The ICR Institute for Radical Chemistry (UMR7273) is a Joint Research Unit with the University of Aix-Marseille and the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) as trustees. Created on January 1, 2012, the ICR is attached to the CNRS Institute of Chemistry (INC). From a scientific point of view, the creation of the UMR results from a strong desire to combine the complementary skills of research teams specializing in radical chemistry, molecular modelling (MQ and MM) and molecular or macromolecular spectroscopic characterization respectively.
