Research area:

The usefulness of double bond migration catalysed by transition-metal complexes, super bases and crown ether/base systems in organic synthesis. Synthesizing acetals and orthoesters via alcohol and phenol addition to O-allyl compounds catalysed by transition metal complexes. Synthesizing isoxazolines from allyl compounds via isomerization, metathesis and thermal or high pressure activated 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition of nitrile oxides (in various sequences). Synthesis of aryl- and diaryl acetylenes and diaryl buta-1,3-diynes via coupling of acetylene, trimethylsilylacetylene and buta-1,3-diyne with iodo- or bromoarenes and heteroarenes mediated by Pd or Pd/Cu catalytic systems. Synthesizing carbo- (polysubstituted benzenes, naphthalenes, anthracenes, fluoranthenes and others) and heterocyclic systems (triazoles, piroles, quinolines and others), via dihydroamination, [4 + 2], [2 + 1 + 2 + 1], [2 + 2 + 2] and [3 + 2] cycloadditions and other reactions (thermal, catalytic or under high pressure). Synthesis of ruthenium, rhenium, iridium, platinum and gold complexes with various types of ligands (terpyridines, bipyridines, acetylides, 1,3-diketonates, cyclometalated ones) dedicated to organic electronics or pharmacy. Synthesizing monomers, including organometallics, dedicated to conducting polymers (polythiophenes in particular). Research on the mechanisms of catalytic reactions and the relation between the structure and reactivity in the various reactions (double bond migration in allylic systems, 1,3-DC cycloaddition and others).
