Abder received his PhD in organometallic chemistry and polymerization catalysis from the university of Rennes in 2006 supervised by Profs. J.-F. Carpentier and C. Thomas (now in Chimie Paristech). He then moved to the University of Konstanz (Germany) as an Alexander-von-Humboldt postdoctoral research associate with Prof. S. Mecking. In 2008, he was appointed a CNRS research position at the University of Toulouse. In 2017, he was promoted to full Professor at the University of Lyon (UCBL). His work has received several awards, including most recently a nomination as junior member at the Institut Universitaire de France (2019), the Thieme Chemistry Journals Award (2020) and the Young investigator Award from the French Chemical Society, Organic chemistry division (2016).
Research interests in our group range from fundamental organometallic chemistry to the development of dual catalytic strategies with transition metals for the selective activation and functionalization of challenging C-H, C-N and C-O bonds. We are particularly seeking to merge the rational design of transition metal catalysts with the creative use of photochemical and electrochemical strategies. A significant part of our efforts is dedicated to fundamental mechanistic studies of new catalytic processes through multidisciplinary approaches.
