Lab for Molecular Chemistry and Catalysis for Energy

LCMCE gathers a group of molecular chemists who are passionate about making and breaking bonds using organic and organometallic catalysts. These efforts are devoted to converting oxygenated molecules (C1 molecules, waste plastics, biomass by-products, nitrogen oxides…) to useful chemicals, along with the development of renewable hydrides, aiming at closing the C and N cycles and fostering a circular economy. Following a knowledge-driven approach, we synthesize novel molecular catalysts (organic and organometallic) and investigate their modes of action through mechanistic studies.
