Molecules, Solids and Reactivity (MOST)
The division of MOlecules, Solids and ReactiviTy (MOST) of the Institute of Condensed Matter and Nanosciences (IMCN) at the Université catholique de Louvain (UCL) hosts about 130 researchers and technicians active in the field of the design and synthesis of molecules and supramolecular architectures, and the study of their properties.
The research activities of MOST cover various and complementary scientific topics: inorganic and organic synthesis, theoretical modelisation, homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis, biotransformations, hybrid materials, surface chemistry, crystallisation, ...
The applications include the development of biologically active molecules and diagnostic agents, stimuli-responsive materials for (bio) sensors, selective and environmentally-friendly processes,...
Research is supported by a strong expertise in molecular chemistry, structural analysis (IR, UV-VIS, RMN, MS, ...) and solid state characterization.
The current elected-chair of MOST is Prof Olivier RIANT.
