Quentin Sobczak PhD viva

On the 7th of November, Quentin defended his PhD thesis entitled “”Synthesis of new amino-containing p-conjugated polymers via dimerization of acyclic aminoarylcarbenes” in front of a jury composed of Dr. S. Reynaud (U. Pau), Dr. D. Martin (U. Grenoble Alpes) and Dr. D. Gigmes (U. Aix-Marseille). Congratulations Quentin and good luck for the future.

Our paper in honor of Prof. P. Renaud on the occasion of his 60th birthday

Our article in Helvetica Chimica Acta on “Aryl-mediated Alkenylation of Alkyl halides” has just been accepted. This paper is dedicated to Prof. Philippe Renaud (University of Bern, Switzerland) on the occasion of his 60th birthday. Our team and Philippe’s team have collaborated for several years on projects around radical chemistry, in particular on carbo-azidation of chiral allylsilanes and radical processes involving silaboranes.

Congratulations to Ahmed and Gülbin.
