Profile

Marc-Etienne Moret was born in Lausanne, Switzerland. In 2005 he obtained his master’s degree in chemistry from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). During his undergraduate time at EPFL he acquired research experience in organometallic synthesis and computational chemistry, working on the synthesis of organochromium(0) ionic liquids in the group of Prof. Paul Dyson and subsequently writing his master thesis on QM/MM simulations of aqueous [Ru(bpy)3]2+ in the group of Prof. Ursula Rothlisberger. Marc-Etienne then moved to the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich (ETHZ) where he obtained his PhD under the supervision of Prof. Peter Chen.  His graduate work focused on the study of reaction mechanisms in organoplatinum chemistry by mass spectrometric methods, as well as on platinum-copper heterobimetallic compounds and their reactions. Following graduation in 2009, Marc-Etienne moved to the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) for two-years of postdoctoral research in the group of Prof. Jonas C. Peters on the activation of N2 by synthetic iron complexes, for which he was awarded a fellowship for prospective researchers and a fellowship for advanced researchers from the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF). Marc-Etienne then accepted a position as assistant professor in the Organic Chemistry and Catalysis group at the University of Utrecht starting in August 2012.

Dr. Moret’s  interests lie in the organometallic chemistry of base metals (Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Cu), targeting the development of innovative approaches towards catalytic systems using these cheap, nontoxic metals to promote (in)organic transformations of environmental and/or industrial significance such as CO2 reduction, olefin metathesis, and group transfer reactions. Using tailored ligands that control key properties of the metal center such as its coordination number, redox potential, and spin state, synthetic access to key intermediates in catalytic cyles is sought. An in-depth study of the properties and reactivity of these compounds is expected to allow for rational design and improvement of catalysts. Novel strategies towards metal-ligand cooperation in the activation of challenging substrates are also being explored.
