Clément Camp is currently a CNRS researcher in the Laboratoire de Chimie, Catalyse, Polymères et Procédés (C2P2 – UMR 5265), in Lyon (France). He earned the Agrégation of Science Physiques in 2009 and graduated in 2010 from the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon (France). He received his Ph.D. degree in 2014 from the University of Grenoble (France) for his work on the coordination chemistry and reactivity of low-valent f-element compounds, performed under the supervision of Dr. Marinella Mazzanti. He then joined Prof. John Arnold’s group at the University of California, Berkeley (USA) for postdoctoral training where he studied the activation of small molecules by transition metal complexes. His current research interests deal with surface organometallic chemistry and cooperative effects in catalysis. Clément has authored 38 scientific papers, tackling problems in inorganic and organometallic chemistry with elements from across the periodic table. He is recipient of the 2017 CNRS-MOMENTUM award and was the chair of the 2018 "Green Chemistry" Gordon research seminar.

Research Interests

Metal-metal and metal-support cooperative effects in catalysis
