  • 1-The synthesis of various TM-substituted silylenes. 2-Analysis of the obtained complexes and study of their reactivity.

    One of the most recent fascinating discoveries in main group element chemistry is that certain non-metallic reactive species behave quite similarly to transition metals (TMs) and are able to activate small molecules (with strong bonds) such as H-H, previously believed to be only possible using TMs. This discovery, providing interesting perspectives such as the use of such non-metallic species as an alternative to TMs with original properties to exploit new chemistry, is particularly important. However, our current knowledge to master the parameters controlling such properties is still far from satisfactory. In this project, we will effectuate a fundamental and exploring research to establish a new methodology to induce the TM-like behavior of Si(II) species (silylenes) taking advantage of electronic and steric effects of TM-substituents. We expect to use such TM-substituted silylenes as unprecedented hybrid (non-metal and metal) binuclear complexes.

    The candidate must have a solid background in molecular chemistry (organic and organometallic chemistry). Good skill in manipulations with highly reactive molecules (air-sensitive complexes) will also be required.
