Catalysis, Synthesis & Environment

Our team (Catalysis, Synthesis & Environment) develops of innovative catalytic methodologies and synthetic strategies having low environmental impact. Our research is centered on the valorization of biomass (vegetable oils, sugar derivatives, polyols) to bio-based chemicals with higher added-value presenting diverse properties (surfactants, hydrotropes, solvents, building-blocks, monomers…). The activation of small molecules (CO2, SF6...) is also the focus of our research activities.
