  • Reactivity in organic chemistry (ECPM – 1st Year)


Group leader, CNRS Research Director
Director, CNRS/Unistra/BAYER C2OF Lab
Ph.D., University of Konstanz, 1998


Frédéric Leroux obtained a PhD in chemistry at the University of Konstanz (Germany), under the supervision of Prof. H. Fischer. In 1998, he moved to a postdoctoral position with Prof. M. Schlosser at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland) and accepted the same year a position of Assistant Professor. In 2001 he moved then to the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL). He started his independent research career in 2003 as CNRS Research Associate at the University of Strasbourg (France). He obtained his habilitation in 2005 and was promoted CNRS Research Director in 2009. His research is published in >140 peer-reviewed publications, 22 patents, 14 book chapters and presented by invitation at >120 (inter)national conferences. He is Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (FRSC). He is also a member of the International Scientific Committee of the Moissan Prize (Fluorine Chemistry) and Coordinator of the French Fluorine Network. He is currently director of the Laboratoire d’Innovation Moléculaire & Applications (UMR 7042 CNRS/Université de Strasbourg/Université de Haute-Alsace). In 2018, Frédéric Leroux was elected as member of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts.
