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.
Eva Bednářová is awarded a fellowship from the Experientia Foundation
The young scientist Eva Bednářová, the first woman to receive a scholarship from the Experientia Foundation, will carry out a one-year postdoctoral training at Columbia University, New York in Prof. Tomislav Rovis’ laboratory. Eva is a doctor from Charles University in Prague and the University of Montpellier. At IBMM, she carried out her research work in the Green Chemistry and Enabling Technologies team under the direction of Frédéric Lamaty.

Mechanochemistry, reactive extrusion, continuous flow: 3 "Chemical Innovations That Will Change Our World" says IUPAC
The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) has identified emerging technologies in Chemistry with potential to make our planet more sustainable. Among these are mechanochemistry, reactive extrusion and continuous flow chemistry. Forerunner particularly in the field of mechanochemistry, the Green Chemistry and Enabling Technologies team at Institute of Biomolecules Max Mousseron has also developed expertise in the fields of continuous flow chemistry and reactive extrusion, which makes it a team of the cutting edge of innovations in green chemistry!
- Mechanochemistry Summer School
Frédéric Lamaty and Xavier Bantreil were invited to present their work at the Mechanochemistry Summer School organized by the University of Sussex (UK) on July 5th 2019 in the framework of the LabFact project « Transforming Laboratories into Factories ». After a morning of lectures on mechanochemistry, the afternoon was dedicated to experiments and the use of milling equipment.
