The research activity of the CMC team is mainly focused on the development of innovative synthetic tools. The driving force of our projects is the (stereo)selective synthesis of original building-blocks that can be of interest in medicinal chemistry or material science.

Particularly, molecular diversity is targeted through the synthesis and/or functionalization of diverse heterocycles and strained cycles. A special attention is dedicated to the design of sustainable reactions to access these high-added value molecules. To fulfill this objective, priority is given to catalytic processes and, when possible, earth-abundant metal catalysts are favored.

In addition, a more recent interest is devoted to homogeneous and heterogeneous photocatalysis using visible-light. The development of such methods will be strongly correlated to continuous-flow chemistry, which constitutes another axis of research in our group.
