Research areas

The SORG group’s scientific activities are based around four themes, with strong interactions between areas and without any formal separation. Some research topics fall only within one theme, while others participate in the development of several areas, particularly those in the fifth, transversal axis. Five themes are being explored:
 - Catalytic and organocatalytic processes
- Fluorinated compounds
- Heterocycles
- Molecular materials: conception, design and applications
- Valorisation of natural products and industrial applications
