During this seminar, I will address 2 topics that are developed in my group. First, it will be presented the use of enzymes as an alternative of transition metal based catalysts, which reveal to be impurities for some applications (biomedical and microelectronics for example). Enzymes have the advantage to be metal-free, to perform the reactions in mild conditions and to be also selective. Recent examples developed will be presented.

Second, a method to synthesize reversibly cross-linked polybutadiene or polyisoprene networks based on covalent bonding will be presented. High molar mass polymers were first chemically degraded into smaller chains, in order to obtain a liquid/viscous polymer. Then, polymeric chain were modified in order to develop reversible interactions, giving access to a reversible network. Thermal stability of the material was investigated as well as their elastic properties. Impact of the chain length, cross-linking density and recyclability of the reversible networks will be particularly discussed.
