Metallomimetic Chemistry of Boron: Metal-Free Catalysis and Nitrogen Fixation at a Main Group Element
Marc-André Légaré, Ph.D., is a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada Postdoctoral Fellow at the Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg, studying the reactivity of novel low-valent boron compounds. He earned his doctorate, and master’s and bachelor’s degrees at the Université Laval, Québec. Some of his research encompassed the computational design of catalytic systems, the investigation of B-heteroaromatic compounds, and the metal-free catalysts for small molecule activation and building block synthesis.
