  • The deoxygenation of N–O and S–O bonds is a chemical challenge, and is key to provide interconversion pathways between various oxidation states of N and S containing compounds. These processes are necessary to close the nitrogen and sulphur cycles which are at the moment open due to human activities. Deoxygenation of N–O and S–O bonds currently rely on thermochemical methods and sacrificial reducing agents. The ANR-funded DeNOSOr project aims at developing transition metal based molecular catalysts for the selective and efficient photo- and electro-catalytic deoxygenation of N–O and S–O bonds, through mechanistic investigations.

    In the frame of this collaborative project, the proposed PhD thesis will focus on the investigation of the (photo)-catalytic process, employing complementary spectroscopic techniques, namely electronic and vibrational spectroscopies. Time-resolved photophysical studies will also be performed to get insights on the initial steps of the photocatalysis, as well as on short- lived transient species. Whenever relevant, putative intermediates will be generated by chemical synthesis and characterized by NMR, UV-vis, IR spectroscopy.
