    50th Anniversary of Organometallic Chemistry in Rennes

    To celebrate this event a reception will be offered on April 3rd, 2014 at 18 h 30

    within the 2nd International Green Catalysis Symposium

    in the “club des professeurs” main Building batiment 1, campus of Beaulieu

    University of Rennes

    In 1964 Professor René Dabard, coming from Dijon University and Professor Jean Tirouflet laboratory, created at the university of Rennes 1 the first laboratory on organometallic chemistry.

    He initially developed metallocene chemistry and related new planar chirality concepts.
    This reception will celebrate this event in the presence of Professor René Dabard.
