Research Interests

The main activity of the research group is the synthesis of functional polyolefins. To achieve this goal, one of the most challenging reactions in polymer chemistry is investigated in the group: the copolymerization of olefins and polar monomers (such as acrylates, vinyl acetate…). In particular, this work implies the development of well-defined catalysts to control the (co)polymer microstructure and to access to new polymers. Other fields of research are 1) the synthesis of polyolefins by conventional Ziegler-Natta polymerization of olefins with the aim to obtain a "single site behavior "of the catalysts 2) the study of nascent catalytic polymerizations with stopped flow reactors 3) the developpment of new catalysts for silicone and polyesters synthesis. The field of our activities is broad, from organometallic chemistry to polymer synthesis and characterization.
