Structure and Reactivity Team for Paramagnetic Species (SREP)
Resp. Olivier Ouari


Synthesize and study new stable or persistent free radicals. Applications in the development of bi- or polyradical contrast agents for nuclear dynamic polarization (PDN) applied to Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR). Molecules for the detection of free radicals with very short lifetimes. Interface between free radicals and various supramolecular structures. Batteries based on paramagnetic compounds.


  • Synthesis and evaluation of new radical molecules mainly nitroxide type
  • Synthesis of radical probe traps
  • Studies RPE / calculations / spin trapping
  • Macrocyclic and supramolecular chemistry
