Dr. Tatiana Besset was educated in chemistry at the University of Grenoble (France) in the group of Dr. Andrew E. Greene, where she obtained her doctoral degree in 2009. She then moved to the Westfälische Wilhelms Universität Münster (Germany) as a postdoctoral fellow in the group of Prof. Frank Glorius (Rh C-H bond activation). In 2011, she joined the group of Prof. Joost N. H. Reek at the University of Amsterdam (the Netherlands), as a postdoctoral fellow in collaboration with the Eastman company where she was working on supramolecular encapsulated rhodium catalysts for branched selective hydroformylation of alkenes. Since October 2012, she is working as a CNRS Researcher (Chargée de Recherche CNRS) in the “Fluorinated Biomolecules Synthesis” group of Prof. Pannecoucke (UMR 6014, Rouen University and INSA Rouen, France). Her research focuses on the transition metal-catalyzed C–H activation and the development of new strategies for the synthesis of fluorinated building blocks.

Our recent contribution has been published in Angewandte Chemistry International Edition. A new fluorinated reagent has been prepared and successfully applied with various nucleophiles opening new perspectives for future and broadening the tool-box of the emergent SCF2FG reagents.

The CEFIPRA project will start soon! welcome to Fabien Gelat.
