Frémy and Darzens Lectures of Ecole Polytechnique-ENSTA ParisTech on Monday, 17th Oct

Bastien’s lecture at Frémy and Darzens Lectures at ENSTA ParisTech on Monday, 17th October 2016, 16h (needing registration): At the Crossroads of Total Synthesis and Natural History: Chemistries in a Museum annonce-half-day-symposium-darzens-2016v6   Advertisements

Congrats for Dr. Mehdi Zaghouani who successfully defended his PhD on Friday 7th!

Mehdi spent three years in our lab at the National Museum of Natural history in Paris, working on the Total synthesis, structure revision and natural history of dwarf cytochalasins: periconiasins under Bastien’s supervision. He was funded by the ANR SYNBIORG.

Ombeline Sculfort starts her PhD on the evolution of toxicity in mimetic butterflies

Ombeline Sculfort started her PhD on 3rd October 2016, working on the evolution of chemical defences in mimetic butterfly communities. FR: Histoire d’une convergence évolutive : évolution des défenses chimiques au sein de communautés de papillons mimétiques. This is a collaboration with Dr. Violaine Llaurens and Dr. Marianne Elias at Museum. Welcome Ombeline!

Congrats for Dr. Benjamin Laroche who successfully defended his PhD on Monday 3rd!

Benjamin spent three years in our lab at the National Museum of Natural history in Paris, working on the Total synthesis of a biomimetic precursor of polycyclic chalasins and development of a bio-inspired photo-oxygenation strategy under Bastien’s supervision. He had got a PhD fellowship of the “Fondation pour le Développement de la Chimie des Substances […]

Meet us at JCO 2016 from 7th to 9th September 2016

With an oral communication of Benjamin Laroche on Thursday: Total synthesis of a key biomimetic precursor towards polycyclic chalasans (OC40). And the posters of Mehdi Zaghouani (Total synthesis of new cytochalasans in the periconiasin series, P058), Wei Zhang (Biomimetic oxidative strategies for the synthesis of medicinally relevant natural products in the diketopiperazine series, P298) and […]

Welcome back Aimilia to work on the chemical ecology of toxic mimetic butterflies!

Aimilia Meichanetzoglou will work on butterfly toxin analysis for 2 months. All collected in Peru. Collaboration with Dr. Marianne Elias and Dr. Violaine Llaurens (MNHN).
