Henri-Pierre J. de Rouville

Chargé de Recherche

Henri-Pierre Jacquot de Rouville graduated from the University Paul Sabatier of Toulouse. In 2007, he joined C. Joachim’s Group and obtained a PhD degree for his synthesis of technomimetic molecules for nanomechanical applications under the supervision of Professor G. Rapenne (CEMES-CNRS, Toulouse). From 2010 to 2012, he joined Professor J. F. Stoddart’s Group as a postdoctoral fellow where he investigated the chemistry of mechanically interlocked molecules. Then, he moved back to France where he worked as a postdoctoral fellow with N. McClenaghan (ISM, Bordeaux). In 2013, he was appointed as Chargé de Recherche (Full Time Researcher at the CNRS) at the laboratory ITODYS, Paris. In November 2017, he moved at the Institut de Chemistry of Strasbourg where he joined the LSAMM research group.
