Green Chemistry and Enabling Technologies

Stacks Image 9845

The research group Green Chemistry and Enabling Technologies is part of the Department of Amino acids, Peptides and Proteins of the Institut des Biomolécules Max Mousseron (IBMM) headed by Prof. Pascal Dumy. Located on the campus Triolet of the University de Montpellier, our team devotes its activities towards the development of a more sustainable chemistry, by using modern synthesis technologies, such as mechanochemistry, continuous flow and microwaves. These approaches enable the efficient and eco-responsible preparation of organic molecules, organometallics and materials, by using solvent-free synthesis, alternative solvents and catalysis. The molecules, synthesized in an innovative way, find applications in medicinal chemistry, catalysis and depollution.

    Thomas-Xavier Métro, laureate of EMERGENCE@INC2018

    The project entitled « CO2 valorization by mechanochemistry » proposed by Thomas-Xavier Métro (Green Chemistry and Enabling Technologies team, IBMM) was selected by the CNRS Institute of Chemistry as part of the EMERGENCE@INC2018 call for proposals. This call for proposals aimed to support the emergence of tenured researchers recruited for 5-10 years, by providing them with financial support to develop innovative projects. Among the 342 applications, 47 projects were pre-selected and 20 were funded. The success of this call for proposals will allow the funding of a postdoctoral fellowship for a period of 12 months to develop the valorization of CO2 by mechanochemistry.

    Marcin Drop, a student involved in a shared thesis program between the University of Montpellier and the Jagellonian University (Krakow, Poland), was awarded a 2nd Poster Prize (over 1912 contributions) in the engineering category during the Twitter conference organized by the Royal Society of Chemistry. This conference took place March 6-7, 2018 and consisted in posting and discussing a poster on Twitter. Marcin presented his work on the synthesis of heterocycles via ring-closing metathesis in continuous flow (Green Chem. 2017, 19, 1647).
