Thèmes de recherche

Our goal is to apply new synthetic organic chemistry and high throughput screening methods to the following projects: organometallic catalysis, metal sequestering agents and carbon isotope labeling.
For this purpose, immunoassay technologies have been developed as a tool for the identification of efficient catalysts as well as for reaction discovery. The team is also involved in the design, parallel synthesis and screening of powerful metal ligands for detection or decontamination applications. Our efforts are also focused on the development of new chemical processes able to label biological active molecule as well as relevant nanoparticules with 13C or 14C in order to study their metabolism and in vivo biodistribution.
