DuPont Chemicals & Fluoroproducts (DC&F) has awarded Sébastien Alazet with the 2015 Fluorine Chemistry Student Award to honor his outstanding achievements in the field of fluorine research.

This award was inaugurated for students at the Master’s or Ph.D. level and young professionals in the Europe, Middle East & Africa region who have clearly demonstrated a high level of quality research in their particular field of fluorine chemistry. The award – a certificate and EUR 1,500 prize money – was presented by Marcel Vandennoort, Director DC&F Europe, and Martial Pabon, member of the judging panel and R&D, Innovation Manager EMEA at DC&F, to the winner at a DuPont event during the Achema exhibition in Frankfurt, Germany. An international jury of six experts evaluated the submissions based on several criteria, including excellence and global impact.

Sébastien Alazet worked on the so-called “electrophilic trifluoromethylthiolation” research at the Institute of Chemistry and Biochemistry (Université Claude Bernard – Lyon 1 CNRS). During his thesis work, he developed new reagents and new methods for the direct introduction of the CF3S moiety into organic molecules, formerly only possible using highly toxic chemicals under harsh conditions. His research results contributed towards solving some major challenges in organofluorine chemistry.

Providing mild methods to incorporate fluorine into complex organic molecules opens up pathways to more sustainable synthesis and eventually can facilitate the scale-up to industrial production. His work has the potential to further stimulate the increasing importance of fluorinated molecules in various fields, ranging from materials to life sciences.
