Sylvestre Bonnet is Full Professor in Bioinorganic Chemistry at Leiden University. He studies the (photo)chemistry of metal-based molecules in biological and biomimetic environment.
By combining bioinorganic chemistry and photochemistry his group makes new light-activatable prodrugs for use as targeted anticancer agents with minimal side effects.
Another part of the group studies how to assemble metal-based photosensitizers and catalysts to trap the sun energy into a solar fuel.
The Leiden Institute of Chemistry (LIC) is the largest institution gathering chemistry research groups within Leiden University.
Chemistry researchers at Leiden University take a fundamental approach in finding tailored solutions for complex societal problems in human health and environmental issues. computer science and other disciplines at Leiden University.
The Leiden Institute of Chemistry is organised around two major research clusters: Chemical Biology and Energy & Sustainability.
We have places for students with CSC scholarships:
