Our group is interested in developing transition metal complexes with modular properties controlled through ligand design (photoluminescent properties, redox reactivity). Eventually, we plan to use these properties in the design of new stimuli-responsive polymers.
We also work on developing homogeneous catalysts for reactions relevant to renewable energy production (e.g. carbon dioxide reduction to liquid fuel) and environmentally benign, “green” transformations.

We just received good news today that Sebastien got the 2019 Student Presentation Award at the 99th Chemical Society of Japan meeting! Congratulations for great presentation!
