Damien PhD defense

On the 6th of June, Damien Magis defended his PhD thesis entitled “Synthèse et réactivité de nouveaux carbènes amino(aryl) acycliques stables. Applications et synthèse de polymères organiques” in front of a jury composed of Dr. J. Broggi (Aix-Marseille U.), Dr. D. Martin (U. Grenoble Alpes), Dr. V. Cesar (U. P. Sabatier, Toulouse), Dr. K. Miqueu (U. Pau et des Pays de l’Adour) and Prof. D. Taton (U. Bordeaux).

Congratulations Damien !! We wish you good luck for the future.

Article accepted in JACS

Our article entitled “Expedient Synthesis of Thermally Stable Acyclic Amino(haloaryl)carbenes. Experimental and Theoretical Evidence of “Push-Pull” Stabilized Carbenes” has been accepted for publication in J. Am. Chem. Soc. 


This work was carried out under the frame of the ANR “Carbenopol” in collaboration with K. Miqueu, J.-M. Sotiropoulos (IPREM, UPPA), D. Taton and J. Vignolle (LCPO, UB)

Congratulations to Damien and Jorge for their remarkable work.
