Marc Mauduit

Dr. Marc Mauduit is Research Director CNRS at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Rennes.

Dr. Marc Mauduit obtained his Ph.D degree in 1999 from the University of Paris-Sud Orsay in France under the guidance of Prof. Y. Langlois. After working as postdoctoral fellow with Prof. S. Hanessian at Montreal University in Canada, he joined the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Rennes (UMR CNRS 6226 « Institut des Sciences Chimiques de Rennes ») in 2001 as Researcher Fellow at CNRS. In 2010, he was appointed Reseacher Director at CNRS.

His research interest mainly focuses on organometallic chemistry, notably 1) in the development of olefin metathesis Ru-complexes and its applications towards the Biomass transformation and 2) in Cu-based enantioselective catalysis by involving newly designed chiral ligands (N-Heterocyclic Carbenes or NHC).
