L’objectif de ce groupe de recherche est de créer de nouvelles molécules organo-­phosphorées et sulfurées d’une part, en vue d’étudier leurs applications comme intermédiaires de synthèse sélectifs notamment en synthèse asymétrique et organométallique et, d’autre part, pour leurs activités potentielles dans le domaine du médicament, de l’agrochimie ou des matériaux.
Un autre aspect de ce groupe est la synthèse à façon de liquides ioniques pour des applications variées.

Nouveaux milieux de types liquides ioniques



Phosphorus Chemistry

A multinuclear NMR study shows that the deprotonation of diphenylphosphine-borane by n-BuLi in THF leads to a disolvated lithium phosphido-borane Ph2P(BH3)Li of which Li+ is connected to the hydrides on the boron and two THF molecules rather than to the phosphorus. This entity behaves as both a phosphination and a reducing agent, depending on the kinetic or thermodynamic control imposed to the reaction medium. Density functional theory computations show that H2P(BH3)Li exhibits a ditopic character (the lithium cation can be in the vicinity of the hydride or of the phosphorus). It explains its dual reactivity (H- or P-addition), both routes going through somewhat similar six-membered transition states with low activation barriers.


Our research aims to take advantage of physical organic chemistry tools to investigate the reactions mechanisms of processes previously developed in our laboratory, in particular:

– Phosphido boranes chemistry;

– Enantioselective hydrophosphination;

– Phosphine catalysis and aminocatalysis.
