Author Biography

Pierre H. Dixneuf is professor of chemistry at the University of Rennes, now Emeritus Professor. He has created a team on Organometallic Chemistry and Catalysis, and in 2000 he founded the Research Institute of Chemistry of Rennes. He has developed successively several processes in ruthenium catalysed reactions: transformations of alkynes, incorporation of CO2, ruthenium-vinylidenes and ?allenylidenes in catalysis, catalytic synthesis of heterocycles, alkene metahesis catalysts and applications, C-H bond activation including in water. He has designed many new ruthenium catalysts especially involving metal-carbene bond. He has published more than 380 papers, edited 2 books and owns 5 patents. He is a member of Institute Universitaire de France (IUF) since 2000. He has been awarded several prizes: A. v Humboldt (2000), Le Bel (2000), Grignard-Wittig (2001), Sacconi medal (2006), Prix IFP of Academie des Sciences (2006). He was deputy director of CNRS-Chemistry (96-99).

Victorio Cadierno studied chemistry at the University of Oviedo and obtained his PhD degree in 1996 working under the supervision of Prof. J. Gimeno (University of Oviedo). He then joined the group of Prof. J. P. Majoral at the LCC-CNRS (Toulouse, France) for a two-year postdoctoral stay. Thereafter, he returned to the University of Oviedo where he is currently Associate Professor of Inorganic Chemistry. In 2002 he was awarded with the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry (RSEQ) Young Investigator Award. His current research interests cover the development of catalytic transformations in green reaction media, being co-author of more than 110 publications, including 20 on novel catalytic reactions in water.
