The team develops research projects aiming at designing innovative synthetic tools and molecular architectures, based on expertise in homogeneous catalysis, carbohydrate chemistry and heterocyclic chemistry. Projects are conducted within national and international academic or industrial collaborations and partnerships with applications to :
recent projects concern the chemistry of furanic platform molecules, aiming at diversifying the molecular design of biobased chemicals while overcoming reactivity and selectivity issues.
the projects aims at developing synthetic methodology towards molecules of biological relevance as well as innovation towards biobased chemicals (N or C borrowing hydrogen). Applications range from low- or medium-added value products such as surfactants or polymers, to more elaborated systems such as organocatalysts or molecular scaffolds for fine chemistry.
the team is involved in methodological explorations of biomolecular interactions (carbohydrates, lipids and heterocycles) at the synthetic and physico-chemical level and in projects aiming at the rational design of biologically relevant targets including probes dedicated to the study of biological and biochemical mechanisms and biologically active molecules with antibacterial, pesticide, rodenticide activities.
