Résumé du projet

The main goal of this research project is to introduce a new class of tandem catalysts for the synthesis of biodegradable and biocompatible polyesters. Metal complexes of silanolfunctionalized polyoxotungstates will provide single-site anchored catalysts that aim to connect two independent catalytic cycles for i) the production of epoxides and ii) the ringopening copolymerization of cyclic anhydrides with in-situ formed epoxides.
