Work Context

The Organic Synthesis Laboratory (LSO, UMR 7652) is a mixed unit of CNRS, Ecole Polytechnique (Palaiseau, France) and ENSTA ParisTech (Palaiseau, France). The laboratory's research ranges from the development of new synthetic methodologies to the total synthesis of natural products and molecules of interest, at the interfaces with other disciplines such as biology. Located in Palaiseau on the Saclay plateau, it consists of two groups:
- New methods in organic synthesis
- Synthetic chemistry and biological interfaces
This project will be carried out within the 2nd group, under the direct responsibility of Bastien Nay, research director.

Constraints and risks

The work will be done in an organic chemistry laboratory adapted to the chemical risk (especially fumehoods).
