The molecular ARChitecture group « ARC : Auto-assemblage, Reconnaissance et Chiralité » is highly interested in modern inorganic and organometallic chemistry. The rational designed compounds display important properties such as : Chirality, Luminescence, Catalysis and Recognition.
Our research focuses on four main axes :
- Chirality : from molecular complexes to coordination assemblies and material networks.
- Luminescent properties of coordination assemblies with organometallic linkers for optoelectronic applications.
- Organometallic catalysis, resolution of metal complexes via chiral anion recognition.
- Design of nano-capsules : Guest encapsulation, chiral recognition and chemistry in confined environment.
