ENSICAEN, Caen, France

Tentative title of lecture: Phosphorus-boron compounds: from structure to versatile reactivity




Annie-Claude Gaumont studied chemistry at the University of Rennes and joined the research group of Dr J.M. Denis, graduating with a Ph D in 1991. She had post-doctoral experience as a research associate with Prof. J.M. Brown at the University of Oxford working on mechanism of transition metal catalyzed reactions. From 1992 to 2000, she was appointed by CNRS at the University of Rennes. Since 2001, she is Professor in Organic Chemistry at the University of Caen. Her research interests concern the development of new catalytic reactions for the C-P and C-S bond formation, and the design and synthesis of new ionic liquids for application in the field of materials (templating agent, electrolytes for batteries, heterogeneous catalysts, depolymerization process, functionalization of biopolymers, bio-corrosion…. ).

Research interests: Homogeneous and supported catalysis, Heteroatom chemistry, Ionic liquids and catalysis, Phosphine-borane chemistry, Catalytic C-P bond formation

1992: CNRS researcher, University of Rennes
1998: Research assistant University of Oxford (EPSRC funding)
2001-present: Full Professor in Organic Chemistry, University of Caen-Normandie
