SynCat-H Research Group

Innovative strategies for the development of sustainable asymmetric catalysis methodologies. 


Important news

In September 2023, team leader Joanna WENCEL-DELORD has moved to the University of Würzburg, in Germany. For the near future, the group will be split between Würzburg and the LIMA Unit (CNRS UMR 7042) in Strasbourg (France).

A new local webpage is currently under construction.


Our work is focused on the development of new and sustainable methodologies and their applications to the development of new materials and the synthesis of pharmaceutical and agrochemical targets.

In particular, we focus on asymmetric catalysis, C–H Activation, and the use of hypervalent bromine.

Research on the CNRS Campus

Our laboratories are located within the European School of Chemistry, Polymers and Material Sciences (ECPM), on the Cronenbourg CNRS campus, in the north of Strasbourg.
