Awarded for the application of computational methods to the study of bonding and reaction pathways in inorganic chemistry, particularly for the f-elements


About the Winner


Laurent Maron completed a PhD in theoretical chemistry at Toulouse University, France and a PhD in Theoretical physics at Stockholm University, in 1999. Then, he did a post-doctoral stay in the group of O. Eisenstein in Montpellier sponsored by the Michelin manufactory. In 2001, he was appointed assistant professor in Toulouse and got promoted full professor in 2008. In 2006, he was nominated junior member of the Institut Universitaire de France. 

He was recently awarded an experienced researcher fellowship from the Humboldt foundation (Germany) and from the Chinese Academy of Science (Shangai). His research is carried out in synergy with experimental groups world-wide. His main interest is theoretical approaches dealing with organic, organometallic and polymerization reactions by mainly computing reaction mechanisms with a special interest in f-element chemistry and small molecule activation. To date, he has published more than 386 papers, 2 reviews, 5 book chapters.
