Luis Blanco was born in 1948 in Paris, France. After a previous study of Conia-ene reactions, he completed his PhD in 1982 under the supervision of Professor Jean-Marie Conia at the Université Paris-Sud, Orsay, France, where he worked on the synthesis and the transformations of halosilyloxycylopropanes. He entered the Centre National de Recherche Scientifique in 1973. In 1985, he joined for one year Professor K. P. C. Vollhardt’s group at University of Berkeley, California, as a post-doctoral fellow to work on the synthesis of multiphenylenes. His research interests concentrated on silyl enol ethers and on cyclopropanic compounds as synthetic tools, using ionic, radical, and oxidative methods to open the cyclopropanic rings, and on the use of enzymes in organic synthesis. More recently, he was involved in the enantio- and diastereoselective synthesis of sila-substituted organic compounds and he works to obtain sila drugs.
