The research group Green Chemistry and Enabling Technologies is part of the Department of Amino acids, Peptides and Proteins of the Institut des Biomolécules Max Mousseron (IBMM) headed by Prof. Pascal Dumy. Located on the campus Triolet of the University de Montpellier, our team devotes its activities towards the development of a more sustainable chemistry, by using modern synthesis technologies, such as mechanochemistry, continuous flow and microwaves. These approaches enable the efficient and eco-responsible preparation of organic molecules, organometallics and materials, by using solvent-free synthesis, alternative solvents and catalysis. The molecules, synthesized in an innovative way, find applications in medicinal chemistry, catalysis and depollution.
Xavier Bantreil, associate professor at the IBMM, was nominated as Junior member at the Institut Universitaire de France
