Pierre de Frémont received his M.Sc. degree, in 2003, from Le Mans Université and his Ph.D., in 2007, from the University of New Orleans, in Prof. Steven P. Nolan’s group.
In 2008, he was a postdoctoral fellow at the IBM Almaden center with Dr. James Hedrick; and in 2009, at the Université de Rennes 1 with Prof. Jean-François Carpentier.
He was hired by the CNRS in 2009 and appointed to the university of Strasbourg until 2023.
He has recently moved to the University of Burgundy Europ

2 projects must be developed in a short notice:

  1. The synthesis of bimetallic complexes supported by ferrocene-diphosphine ligands, and their use in catalysis
    (well established subject of research in the CAPCOM team)
  2. The development of complexes supported by NHC ligands and their applications in catalysis.
    (subject brought by the researcher).
