This course aims to describe the different solvent effects observed in the literature and modelise them using multiparameter relationships such as Koppel-Palm and Kalmet-Abboud-Taft. The purpose will be highlighted using examples from both the literature and the author.
Main topics addressed
- What are solvent effects?
- What are the parameters used to describe solvent effects?
- What are the models: Kalmet-Abboud-Taft and Koppel-Palm relationship
- Examples of applications of the KP equation
- Examples of applications of the KAt equation
- Examples of solvent effects on spectroscopic properties: the case of hyperfine coupling constants in Electron Paramagnetic Resonance
- Examples of solvent effects on reactivity: homolysis of alkoxyamines
- To know the main solvent effects
- To know how to modelise solvent effects using KP and KAT relationships
- To grasp the subtleties of solvent effects

|Duration of the course: 2 x 2 hours
This CIVIS course will be held at the University of Bucharest. It is organised into 2 sessions of 2 hours.
This CIVIS course is open to Master's students in Chemistry at the University of Bucharest, and to CIVIS students with good knowledge of chemistry. However, it is important to note that no funding will be provided to support the travel and stay of CIVIS students.
A B2 level of English is required.
Students should apply by 7 March 2022 by sending a CV and a short motivation letter to Professor Sylvain Marque from Aix-Marseille Université (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Professor Marque has expertise in Physical Organic Chemistry of radical species applied in Biology, Chemistry, and Materials Sciences. He did his PhD in Marseille. As a post-doctoral fellow, he went to the group of Professor Barton for one year (Texas A&M University, USA), and then to the group of Professor Fischer in Zurich (Switzerland) for 3 years. For a few years, he held a professorship position at the Institute of Organic Chemistry in Novosibirsk (Russia). He has been teaching as a Professor at Aix-Marseille Université for several years now.
