The research activities at LCM, focused on both fundamental and applied aspects, cover a broad spectrum of molecular chemistry, ranging from organometallic chemistry to physical chemistry and analytical chemistry. This primarily involves the synthesis and characterization of organometallic and coordination complexes, as well as their applications in catalysis, particularly for the development of new bond creation methodologies. The theory/experiment interface is also a strong point of the laboratory, mainly for elucidating reaction mechanisms and understanding the electronic properties of transition metal and heavy element complexes. The activity also involves the development of original methodologies, experimental and simulation-based, for the detection and structural analysis of biological, organic, and inorganic molecules. The main fields of application are mass spectrometry for the environment with a particular focus on endocrine disruptors; IRMPD spectroscopy of peptides; and modeling of infrared spectra through molecular dynamics.
