Academic

Laura has both an honours degree and a PhD in chemistry from the University of Liverpool. Her PhD focussed on the synthesis of new bi-functionalised stationary phases for use in reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatography and the analysis these stationary phases using solid-state nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. The aim of this work was to determine the position of the functional groups on the stationary phase and their accessibility to analytes. In addition, Laura’s research also focussed on understanding the way in which the functional groups on the stationary phase interact with different analytes.
