OFFER DESCRIPTION

The Laboratoire de Chimie de Coordination (LCC) of the CNRS (www.lcc-toulouse.fr) is one of the best chemistry institutes in France. We have at our disposal very well equipped technical and analytical platforms for the daily support of scientific work. With more than 70 researchers divided into 15 teams, research at LCC places coordination chemistry as a central tool to tackle current issues related to climate change, energy transition and life sciences. This position is a 3-year doctorate fully funded by the French National Research Agency as part of a collaborative project with the University of Montpellier, Paris-Saclay University and Queen Mary University in London. The candidate will be supervised by Dr Olivier Baslé (LCC) and co-supervised by Dr Yves Canac (LLC).

Photocatalytic reactions, initially inspired by natural photosynthesis, have developed rapidly in recent decades. [1] The possibilities for future developments in this field, in particular in biohybrid photocatalysis (combination of metal complexes and biological substances) are important and promising. [2] Based on our recent work in the design of new photocatalysts, [3] and as part of a collaborative project funded by the French National Research Agency (ANR), the project consists of extending the concept of asymmetric catalysis based on DNA [4] to asymmetric DNA-based photocatalysis by developing novel, highly selective synthetic tools with applications in various asymmetric photocatalytic transformations. More specifically, the project aims to develop metallo-catalyzed systems, for which DNA is used as a chiral inducer in asymmetric cycloaddition reactions promoted by visible light in water.
