Jérôme Canivet was appointed CNRS researcher at the IRCELYON in 2010.

Jérôme  Canivet's team develop new catalytic systems answering current challenges in fine chemicals synthesis and clean energy production by unravelling novel molecular catalysts and heterogenizing within Porous Macroligands, a concept we established for synergistically bridging homogeneous and heterogenous catalysis.

Poous Macroligands

Thanks to their hybrid formulation, MOFs shall bridge the gap between pure inorganic and organic materials, thereby pushing the frontiers of knowledge ever further. Novel porous platforms allows adressing new challenges in heterogeneous catalysis whicle tackling issues on stability and control over active site: Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOF), Covalent Organic Frameworks (COF) and Conjugated Microporous Polymers (CMP). From MOF to COF and CMP, they present decreasing ordered structure and control over the porosity but increasing chemical stability. They thus appear as very appealing platforms and their use as macroligands for the heterogenization of molecular catalysts is further reducing the gap between homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis.

Research topics range from C-C coupling to asymmetry, photocatalysis and green fuels.

In 2018, Jérôme Canivet received the Young Investigator Award from the Catalysis Division of the French Chemical Society for creating trends reducing the gap between homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis.

Jérôme Canivet further aims at exploiting the confinement of molecular catalytic systems into porous structures for the improvement of their catalytic activity and selectivity, and he is coordinating cooperative projects on this topic.
