Our group is interested in the development of novel organometallic complexes for a variety of catalytic applications. Although our research interests are quite fundamental – we seek to gain a detailed understanding of the intramolecular reactions within these complexes – the possible applications are vast, ranging from organic synthesis and functionalization of alkanes, to possible applications in the detection or storage of small molecules, such as hydrogen or carbon dioxide.

The Fontaine group is now on Facebook. You can have access on Membres et anciens du groupe Fontaine.
