Small Molecules Activation (Team N)

LCC

Overview

The “Small Molecules Activation” team brings together 3 researchers and 1 assistant-professor around themes mainly centered on the coordination and organometallic chemistry of a wide range of transition metals.

We apply it to the activation and valorization of small molecules (H2, CO2, N2, CH4, N2O, etc.), sometimes in combination with main-group chemistry: boron, silicon or fluorine also take their place in the portfolio of elements whose reactivity we study.

The team is committed to pushing its discoveries towards technologies related to health, materials, energy and fine chemicals.

After undergraduate studies at the University of Bordeaux where I worked in the lab of Prof. Y. Landais and spent few months as Erasmus student in the lab of Prof. H. Brintzinger at the University of Konstanz, Germany, I moved to the University Paul Sabatier in Toulouse in 2003 for my PhD. I worked under the guidance of Prof. R. Bouhadir and Prof. D. Bourissou on the synthesis and coordination chemistry of mono-, di-, and tri-phosphine-borane compounds showing in particular direct metal→borane interaction. After graduating in 2006, I did a postdoc in 2007-2008 with Prof. R. Jordan at the University of Chicago studying elementary steps of olefin/CO copolymerization with Pd(phosphine-sulfonate) catalysts, and in McGill University in Montreal in 2008-2009 in the team of Prof. B. Arndtsen on palladium-catalyzed one-pot multicomponent synthesis of heterocycles. I then moved back to Toulouse as Chargé de Recherche in 2009 to work in LCC. Since then, I am developing researches directed at CO2 transformations using boranes or silanes and at the synthesis of new first row metal complexes.

Après des études à Chimie ParisTech et à Sorbonne Université, j’ai effectué mon Doctorat sous la direction des Prs. M. Malacria et L. Fensterbank (2008–2012). Les travaux en catalyse à l’or que j’ai menés dans leur laboratoire m’ont valu un prix de thèse Springer. J’ai poursuivi ma formation par un stage post-doctoral à l’Université Technique de Berlin sous la direction du Pr. M. Oestreich (2012–2015), notamment grâce à une bourse de la Fondation Alexander von Humboldt. Fin 2015, j’ai intégré l’équipe du Pr. M. Etienne au LCC comme chargé de recherche pour développer une thématique sur la transformation du diazote. En 2017, j’obtiens un financement “Starting Grant” du Conseil Européen de la Recherche (ERC). Depuis 2018, je codirige l’équipe « Activation de Petites Molécules » avec Sébastien Bontemps. En 2022, l’Institut de Chimie de Toulouse me délivre le prix “Jeune Chercheur”.

Numéro ORCID : 0000-0001-7744-1048

After obtaining a MSc degree at Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon in 2018, I did a 6-month research stay in New Zealand in the research group of Pr. Sally Brooker. There, I worked on the development of terpyridine-triazole ligands used for the assembly of Ru and Fe centers. Then, I came back to Lyon in 2019 where I started a PhD project under the supervision of Dr. Clément Camp and Dr. Chloé Thieuleux in the CP2M laboratory. My thesis was about the design and reactivity of homogeneous and surface-supported Al/Ir heterobimetallic complexes for cooperative catalysis. Now (since January 2023) I am working as a post-doc in the team of Dr Antoine Simonneau at LCC/Toulouse on Push-Pull Systems For N2 Activation.

Mes recherches concernent tous les aspects de la chimie des métaux de transition afin de trouver de nouvelles réactions catalytiques et de comprendre les mécanismes réactionnels associés. Une attention particulière est portée à la caractérisation des modes de coordination inhabituels tels que les systèmes 2 électrons-3 centres. Une des applications potentielles de cette recherche est le stockage de réversible d’hydrogène.

MORALES AGUILAR Agustin

After studying a BSc in Chemistry at the University of Seville for three years, I enrolled a two-year French-Spanish program. After that time, I have been awarded with two master degrees on Chemical Engineering and, Molecular and Supramolecular Chemistry by the European School of Chemistry, Polymers and Materials Science (ECPM), as well as a MSc in Advanced Studies in Chemistry by the University of Seville. Within this program, I have also had the opportunity of working as a R&D Engineer trainee at BASF for 4 months in Ludwigshafen am Rhein (Germany).

Then, I came back to Seville to do my master thesis at the Institute of Chemical Research (IIQ) under the supervision of Dr Campos. I delved into the beauty of organometallic chemistry through Transition Metals Only Frustrated Lewis Pairs (TMOFLP) and unconventional metallic centres for the activation of small molecules.

In 2020, I began my doctoral studies under the supervision of Dr Bontemps and Dr Baslé from the Laboratoire de Chimie de Coordination and, Prof. Dr. Agustí Lledós from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (Spain) with an EJD-Marie Curie Fellowship. These studies comprise the synthesis, reactivity and computational studies of N-heterocyclic carbene-based systems towards CO2 activation.

I obtained my B.Sc. in Chemistry in 2011 and my M.Sc. in Organic Chemistry in 2013 from the Universidad Nacional de Colombia (Bogotá, Colombia). From 2017 to 2018, I was an invited PhD student at Laboratoire de Chimie de Coordination (LCC-CNRS) in Toulouse (France). I worked under the supervision of Dr. Sébastien Bontemps on selective reduction of CO2 into bis(boryl)acetal compounds using earth-abundant metal catalysts and subsequent C-C homocoupling. In 2018, I obtained my PhD in Chemistry at Universidad de los Andes (Bogotá, Colombia) with emphasis in inorganic chemistry, coordination chemistry and catalysis. Since November 2021, I am a Post-doctoral researcher at LCC-CNRS under the supervision of Dr. Mary Grellier. My research focuses on the synthesis of transition metal complexes and study of dehydrogenation of liquid organic hydrogen carriers (LOHCs) for hydrogen storage applications.
