Prof. Gwénaël RAPENNE


After my studies in chemistry at Université Louis Pasteur, Strasbourg, I prepared a Ph.D. supervised by Dr Jean-Pierre Sauvage and Christiane Dietrich-Buchecker working on the synthesis and the resolution of double helices and knots (1995-1998). After spending one year as a Lavoisier postdoctoral fellow working on Fullerenes with Prof. François Diederich at ETH Zürich (Switzerland) as a Lavoisier postdoctoral fellow. In 1999, I joined the NanoSciences Group at CEMES (CNRS) led by Prof. Jean-Pierre Launay and Dr Christian Joachim as an Assistant Professor. In 2011, I have been promoted Full Professor. My research interests are in the field of machines and motors in the nanometer range operating at the molecular level. My skills range from multistep organic synthesis, fullerene functionalization and coordination chemistry to the complete set of classical characterization methods of molecular chemistry.

 

Current projects : Rotating molecular motors - Nanovehicles - Gears

 

Past projects : Molecular wheelbarrow - Molecular Morse manipulator

 

Keywords : Polyaromatics - Nanovehicles - Double decker complexes - tripodal ligands - Molecular rotors and motors - Molecular gears - Technomimetic molecules
