Eric Monflier graduated from Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Lille (ENSCL), France, and received his Ph.D. degree in organometallic chemistry and homogeneous catalysis from the University of Lille, Lille, France, in 1992 under the supervision of Professor F. Petit. In 1992, he became Maître de Conférences at the University of Artois, Arras, France, where he set up an independent research group working on aqueous phase organometallic catalysis. In 1995, he received his habilitation and was promoted to Professor in 1996. Since 2008, Monflier manages the Artois' site of the Unit Catalysis and Chemistry of Solid (UMR CNRS 8181, website: http://www.uccs.univ-artois.fr). His research interests include supramolecular catalysis and catalysis in multiphase systems. He has played a key role in the development of efficient supramolecular mass transfer promoters for aqueous organometallic catalysis. He received the Prix de la Division Catalyse from French Chemical Society in 1996; the Prix des Techniques Innovantes pour l’Environnement from the French Agency for Environment and Energy Management in 2004; and the Prix de l'Innovation et de la Valorisation de la Recherche from OSEO, the French Innovation Agency, in 2009. At the present time, he serves as the Director of the UCCS Artois Laboratory and the Vice-Chairman of the Scientific Council of the University of Artois. Monflier is the author of 145 international scientific publications, 19 book chapters, and 9 patents.
