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
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.
