Dr. Jules Moutet
Jules is a postdoctoral research assistant in the Gianetti lab, who comes from France. He received his Master degree in Organic Chemistry from University Joseph Fourier in 2014, and his Ph. D. degree from University Grenoble Alpes (UGA) in 2017. After that, he continued his postdoctoral studies at the Ecole Polytechnique, Palaiseau (l’X) from May 2018 to October 2019. His doctoral research was focused on the design of hybrid redox-active ligands for complexation to 3d metals and exhaustive characterization of bench-stable radical complexes. His postdoctoral research at l’X was part of an European Research Council grant (No. 716314) and aimed at the development of heterobimetallic catalysts -combining d and f metals- for small molecules activation. This research project also led him to develop new divalent lanthanide species and take part in the design of unusual Single-Molecule Magnet of divalent and trivalent lanthanides. This partially transformed him from a coordination-chemist to a physical-chemist, with knowledge of magnetism, EPR, and various characterizations of paramagnetic compounds. If you don't find him in the glove box at the lab or torturing NMR, he's somewhere on his motorcycle with his camera.
His adage: as long as the beer is good, only knowledge matter.
