Daniel Taton

Daniel Taton obtained his PhD in polymer chemistry in 1994 from the University Pierre & Marie Curie (Paris 6). He holds a professorship position at the University of Bordeaux, France and he develops his research activities at the Laboratory of Organic Polymer Chemistry (LCPO) of which he is the deputy director since 2018. These activities are focused on both " catalysis of polymerization " and "polymerization for catalysis". He is interested -primarily, but not exclusively- in N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) for organocatalyzed polymerization reactions to access a variety of metal-free polymers. His team has also developed recyclable and easy-to-handle polymeric supports. The in situ generation of carbenes confined in custom-designed polymer supports provides unique catalytic activity in organometallic catalysis (Heck and Suzuki couplings) or organocatalysis (benzoin condensation, transesterification) benchmark reactions, including in aqueous media, which is a major challenge, given the high sensitivity of carbenes. Daniel is authors of roughly 150 publications in peer-reviw journals, 15 book chapters and 14 patents.
