Research in Organic and Physical Organic Chemistry


Our research aims at the development of new strategies in organic synthesis, and the application of these methods to the synthesis of compounds with biological or physical interests. Crucial to the success of these new transformations and methodologies is the detailed understanding of the different elementary processes involved. We thus combine computational and experimental methods to understand and predict chemical behavior (reactivity, selectivity, mechanism, ...), with the knowledge gained from these studies being used as a tool to guide our work in synthesis.

Thus, our interests go from applied chemistry, medicinal chemistry, to fundamental research, physical organic studies, going by the development of new methodologies. As a result, all our research subjects deal with organic synthesis but place it in the center of multidisciplinary projects, with several existing collaborations.
