This theme is a historic theme of the group which turns to the problematic of main group organometallics (zinc, magnesium, boron) for which radical and polar mechanisms are in competition.
The project PRIZE , financed by the LabEx MiCHem, animated by Stéphanie Halbert, in collaboration with A. Perez-Luna is currently going on within this theme :
« Unraveling the competition between Polar and RadIcal reactivity of Zinc rEagents: from computational modeling to synthetic methodology. »
In the recent years, we carried out number of studies dealing with Cu-catalyzed C-C bond formation.
