ENSCM Lab

Introduction

International Open Laboratory (École Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Montpellier, ENSCM) aims at the development of novel substances or materials regarding production, storage, and effective usage of energy taking advantage of the element properties of silicon, carbon, or fluorine under the supervision of a PI from ENSCM.
In January 2018, Prof. Dr. Armelle Ouali was inducted as PI, and Dr. Yujia Liu has become the assistant Professor. They work together to conduct research and education shown in the following items:

(1) Taking advantage of the well-defined silsesquioxanes as a ligand (in cooperation with Prof. Masafumi Unno’s group), novel catalysts are developed. With these catalysts, highly selective and effective reactions are realized and applied to the materials for electronic devices and energy-related products.

(2) Synthesis of novel silicon compounds is investigated. This will exclusively be conducted under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Michel WONG CHI MAN and Prof. Dr. Masafumi UNNO incollaboration with Prof. Takako KUDO’s group (theoretical chemistry), for which challenging syntheses of unknown trisilabenzene derivatives will be developed and investigated.
