Arnaud is from Bordeaux, France and studied chemistry at the University of Bordeaux 1 from 2007-2012, where he obtained his licence (BSc) and master (MSc) degree in molecular and supramolecular chemistry. He was awarded a PhD scholarship from the French Ministry of Research (MENRT). Arnaud undertook his doctoral studies in supramolecular chemistry and photochemistry at the University of Bordeaux, under the supervision of Dr Nathan D. McClenaghan from 2012-2015, studying photoactive artificial organic and inorganic supramolecular architectures. His thesis entitled “Interlocked Molecules: Conception, Photocapture and Photoinduced Commutation” was awarded of best thesis in Aquitaine by French Chemical Society (SCF). In January 2016 he joined the research group of Prof Jonathan Nitschke as a research associate. His research was focused on dynamic covalent chemistry, three-dimensional metallo-supramolecular architectures and system chemistry by reversible phase-transfer. In October 2018 he joined the research group of Dr. Nathan D. McClenaghan as a second research associate contract.

Research interests

Design, synthesis and studies of photoactive artificial organic and inorganic supramolecular architectures involving: complex topologies, photochemical transformations, photoinduced electron transfer, electronic energy transfer and copper catalyst formation. Development a variety of ruthenium complex and photocommutable hydrosoluble molecular receptors. Characterisation of photophysical properties via steady-state techniques and dynamic fluorescence spectroscopy, NIR singlet oxygen luminescence decays and cyclic voltammetry analysis.
