Theme 2 : Building Photoactive unit and Electron relay

Ally Aukauloo, Marie Sircoglou


In this research area, we aim to develop new synthetic tactics to covalently assemble a photoactive unit and a putative catalytic unit with the goal to trigger the activation of the catalyst through light excitation. The nature of the chemical link is crucial to preserve the photophysical properties of the chromophore and also to provide directionality in the electron transfer processes.
