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.

    An extruder for greener peptide synthesis

    The IBMM Green Chemistry and Innovative Technologies team is dedicated to the development of sustainable chemistry by using, for example, solvent-free peptide synthesis approaches.
    Recently the use of an extruder, that can apply elevated mechanical forces to a reaction mixture, has enabled the researchers to produce small peptides without using any of the harmful solvents that are of common use in classical solvent-based techniques.
    In addition, this original process can operate continuously and has been found to be up to 100 times more productive than conventional methods in solution.
