Antoine Vacher (born in 1982) received his master degree in organic chemistry in 2007 from the University of Rennes 1. He obtained his PhD in 2011 from the University of Rennes 1 under the supervision of Pr. Dominique Lorcy on the synthesis of new electroactif ligand for organometallic chemistry (Ru, Pt): TTF acetylure. He then carried out postdoctoral research at the University of Cergy_Pontoise in LPPI team on the synthesis of electrophore thiophene polymer. In 2013, he was recruited as a CNRS researcher engineer in the MaCSE group. His research focus on the development of electroactif organic/organometallic building block with a TTF core and the development of spectroscopy measurement coupling with electrochemistry (Uv-vis-NIR, FTIR, emission,…)
He is the co-author of 19 publications.
