Équipe méthodologie exploratoire pour la synthèse organique et organométallique


Julien Legros was educated at the University of Paris-South where he received his Ph.D. under the guidance of Dr. D. Bonnet-Delpon and J.-P. Bégué (2002). After an Alexander von Humboldt post-doctoral position with Prof. C. Bolm at the RWTH Aachen University (Germany), he was appointed as CNRS Research Associate in 2004 (Faculty of Pharmacy Paris-South), and then moved to the University of Rouen Normandy in 2011 (promoted CNRS Research Director in 2018). In 2019, he founded the ‘national French network for flow chemistry’ (GDR Synth Flux). Julien Legros’ research is oriented toward the use of non-conventional media in organic chemistry (flow microreactors, hyperbaric conditions, fluorous solvents).
