Victor Mamane received his M.S. degree from the University of Orsay in 1998 where he worked on asymmetric synthesis under the guidance of Professor H. B. Kagan. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in 2001 on the synthesis and photophysical properties of chiral polyferrocenic compounds from the same university under the supervision of Professor O. Riant. From 2001 to 2004, he worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow successively in the Group of Professor A. Fürstner in the MPI of Mülheim/Rhur (Germany) on the use of late transition metal as pi-acids in organic synthesis and in the Group of Professor H. Waldmann at the MPI of Dortmund (Germany) on the solid phase synthesis of chiral alpha, beta unsaturated lactones. He was appointed in 2004 as CNRS Researcher in the SRSMC Laboratory in Nancy (France). His research activity is focused on heterocyclic and organometallic chemistry as well as on carbon nanotube functionalization.
