Organic synthesis (ORSY)


  • My current research is based on the development of homogeneous and heterogeneous metal-free photocatalysts for the utilization of small molecules such as O2, CO2 molecules and to valorize biomass into high-valued products. My main target is to develop sustainable methodologies in organic synthesis to access pharmaceuticals, fine chemicals and fuel. The long-term view of our chemistry is to industrialize our methodologies and reaching towards the service of the mankind.


You can find here all of the projects that are recorded in the research database of UAntwerp under the name of the academic staff member that acts as a promoter, copromoter or grant holder (a.o. FWO). It concerns only those research projects and mandates that were acquired after an external or internal competition.
