Molecular chemistry of transition metals and main group elements

Objective

With a qualified human potential of about 165 people working in concert for the promotion of coordination chemistry, the LCC constitutes a leading research structure of the CNRS in the field. It offers a high level of expertise in organometallic chemistry, a privileged partnership with industry enabling optimum valorization of research efforts, and a particular dedication to education, with an active implication in the graduate school of the University. Students from European countries will receive research training in synthetic organometallic chemistry and/or main-group elements chemistry, with the possibility to work in one of three optional research directions:
(A) fine chemistry,
(B) life sciences, or
(C) new materials. They will be offered the additional benefit of an on-site access to the most powerful spectroscopic and crystallographic chemical investigation techniques [Multinuclear NMR (500, 400, 300 MHZ), Recent X-ray diffractometers (imaging plate, ccd)]. A stimulating participation to scientific life is encouraged by the organization of weekly seminars where prominent world famous guest speakers are invited. RESEARCH TRAINING AREA:
A) FINE CHEMISTRY: HOMOGENEOUS CATALYSIS (development of clean and selective processes for the hydrofunctionalization of olefins); ASYMMETRIC SYNTHESIS; MOLECULAR HYDROGEN COMPLEXES; C-H and Si-H BOND ACTIVATION, CARBON-CARBON BOND FORMING REACTIONS (organic synthesis, polymerization of olefins). DESIGN OF NEW LIGANDS (selective recognition of metals; treatment of nuclear waste); PHOSPHORUS DENDRIMERS AND RELATED HYPERBRANCHED POLYMERS; EXPANDED CARBON-RICH AROMATIC RING STRUCTURES (carbomers) ;
B) LIFE SCIENCES: DNA CLEAVAGE; NEW ANTIMALARIAL DRUGS ; MECHANISM OF ACTION OF ANTITUMOR and ANTITUBERCULOSIS DRUGS.
C ) NEW MATERIALS : METALLIC NANOPARTICLES, NANOWIRES, GAS SENSORS ; SUPERCONDUCTORS, CERAMIC MATERIALS, SPIN CROSSOVER MATERIALS.
