Jean Pierre Djukic
Jean-Pierre Djukic graduated in organic chemistry from the University Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris) in 1989. In 1992, he obtained a Ph.D. for a study of the reactivity of (hapto6-arene)tricarbonylchromium complexes vs hydrides, which was carried out under the supervision of Dr Eric Rose. From 1993 to 1994 he held a post-doctoral assistantship at Iowa State University in Ames (IA, USA) where he studied the application of osmium(II) porphyrin complexes to catalysis under the supervision of Prof. L. Keith Woo. In 1994, he obtained a permanent appointment at the CNRS and joined the team led by Dr. Michel Pfeffer in Strasbourg, where he is currently heading his research effort in organometallics. From 1996 the A. von Humboldt Foundation granted him a fellowship to collaborate with Prof. Dr. Karl Heinz Dötz at the Univ. of Bonn. Since 2002, he holds a Habilitation of the University of Strasbourg. His themes of research encompass a large spectrum of applications of cyclometallated complexes and organometallics, with particular emphasis on the development of new methodologies towards scalemic planar chiral metallacycles, on the synthesis of new functional compounds for molecular electronics and theoretical & physical investigations of non-covalent interactions (dispersion a.k.a. London force) in organometallics and coordination complexes. His is a member of the ACS and RSC and currently an elected member of the administration council of the University of Strasbourg.
