Green Chemistry and Enabling Technologies

Stacks Image 9845

The research group Green Chemistry and Enabling Technologies is part of the Institut des Biomolécules Max Mousseron (IBMM), directed by Prof. Pascal Dumy and of the Department of Amino acids, Peptides and Proteins directed by Prof. Jean Martinez. Located on the campus Triolet of Université de Montpellier, our team devotes its days to the development of a more sustainable chemistry, by the use of alternative less toxic solvents or using activation methodologies requiring less energy.

    What is mechanochemistry? Or how to explain this breaking technology to your parents, children or friends.

    Institute of Biomolecules Max Mousseron, through the activity of the team Green Chemistry and Enabling Technologies, has become, in the last years, expert of mechanosynthesis in organic and organometallic chemistry. Frédéric Lamaty, DR CNRS at IBMM, explains in a joint article in "CNRS News" and the daily newspaper “Libération” what constitutes mechanochemistry.
