Research interests

Topic 1 Development of original transition metal complexes towards eco-friendly processes.

Our main interest lies in the development of original transition metal complexes featuring proton responsive ligands for the development of ecofriendly transformations involving hydrogen transfer processes ranging from hydrogenation, dehydrogenation to borrowing hydrogen.

Topic 2 Preparation of photoluminescent neutral cuprous and cuprates(I)

Another research interest is focused on the preparation of solvent containing copper complexes to achieve tunable reversible photoluminescence

Topic 3 Access to valuable azaheterocycles via homemade sustainable methodologies

Application of these well-defined complexes allowed us to develop original sustainable approaches towards various aza-heterocycles.
