Request for Proposal: The ACS GCI Pharmaceutical Roundtable is seeking to fund a 1-2 year R&D program to address the Roundtable’s initiatives in iron catalysis. Proposals should target the development of innovative and novel iron-catalyzed coupling reactions or catalytic iron based alternatives for current coupling technologies that enjoy widespread use. Proposals are invited from public and private institutions of higher education worldwide. This collaborative project is intended for a student within the selected Principal Investigator’s research group. One grant in the amount of $100,000 will be awarded to support execution of research for a period of 1-2 years.
Deadline for receipt of proposals is August 22, 2014 at 5 PM EDT (GMT-4).
