SCORE

Synthesis and Catalysis in Organic, Organometallic and REdox chemistries

Welcome to the SCORE-Lab. The SCORE-Lab gathers several researchers with complementary skills and expertises to develop chemistry projects at the forefront of redox catalysis and organic synthesis. This collaborative scheme undoubtedly constitutes the greatest strength of our team and is the corner-stone of our scientific programs. Our research interests encompass synthetic organic and organometallic chemistry, transition metal catalysis, organocatalysis, photoredox catalysis, and electrochemistry. More specifically, research in the SCORE-Lab seeks to merge the rational design of molecular catalysts (organic and organometallic) with the creative use of photochemical and electrochemical techniques to efficiently and sustainably convert readily available feedstock chemicals to high added value organic scaffolds. A significant part of our efforts is dedicated to fundamental mechanistic studies of new catalytic processes through multidisciplinary approaches.

Electrochemistry is a valuable tool when it comes to midly, efficently and selectively manipulating electrons. Our group uses electrochemistry as a robust platform to quickly and efficiently develop and optimize redox processes.

Photoredox catalysis, and photochemistry in general, is a powerful synthetic tool that leverage the ability of certain chemicals to absorb specific wavelenghts, in order to convert light energy into chemical energy. This inherently selective energy delivery allows the design of transformations that would be impossible using classical thermal activation. Our group exploits typically photoredox catalysis to generate free radicals and to couple them using other modes of catalysis (e.g. transition metal catalysis, organocatalysis, electrocatalysis).

Our group investigates transition metal organometallic chemistry, with a particular interest in first row elements (Ni, Mn, Cu). We are exploring new catalytic strategies for the atom-economic coupling of C-O, C-N or C-C based electrophiles with a large scope of nucleophiles (including very mild nucleophilic partners C-H bond activation) as well as possible further functionalization reactions. We are particularly investigating new cooperative strategies that rely on the combination of purposely designed first row transition metal based catalysts with other partners (e.g. electrophilic activators, photocatalysts, electrodes). Apart from these catalytic aspects , we also have a strong expertise in the stoichiometric approach to organometallic chemistry. We are leveraging this expertise toward in-depth mechanistic studies of the reactions we design.

Our group is interested in the design of original multicatalytic systems merging (enantioselective) organocatalysis with various activation modes (photocatalysis, electrochemistry) in order to setup innovative and highly controled transformations.
