Highly effective hydrosilylation reactions catalysed by iridium (III) metallacycles in green conditions

Francine Agbossou-Niedercorn obtained her PhD in the field of porphyrin chemistry. Afterwards, she took a research fellow position with the CNRS in IRCELYON (Villeurbanne) on Cytochrome P450 models. In 1985, she joined the LCC (Toulouse) and got involved in homogeneous catalysis (hydration, amination, oxidation). After a postdoctoral stay at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City with Prof. J. A. Gladysz, she joined UCCS (Lille) in 1991. Since 2010, she is leader of the Department of Catalysis and Molecular Chemistry of UCCS. Her research interests focus on homogeneous catalysis and asymmetric synthesis.


Within the context of hydrosilylation, Ir(III) cyclometallated complexes were found to display novel catalytic properties for the intermolecular tandem hydroamination-hydrosilylation reaction between alkynes and amines.1... [ view full abstract ]
