Research speciality

  • Organic synthesis of electroactive species

  • Chemistry of thiophene

  • Electronic organics

  • Organic solar cells: from the synthesis of molecular systems to the fabrication of photovoltaïcs



  • Philippe Leriche (45 years old) is Professor in the Laboratory MOLTECH-Anjou, University of Angers
  • After a European Ph-D between France and Denmark, he was a NATO postdoctoral fellow with Pr. M. Cava at the University of Tuscaloosa (Alabama, USA)
  • In 1997, he integrates the department of chemistry of the University of Angers as assistant-professor. He is full professor since 2009, author or co-author of 70 papers (including 5 proceedings) and 4 patents
  • His main interest deals with the synthesis of electroactive molecular and polymeric systems usable as electrode or incorporable as active material in electronic devices as organic solar cells
  • He was head of chemistry departement of the University of Angers from 2009 to 2012. He is now assistant-director at the Faculty of Sciences
  • He is responsible (in Angers) of the master LUMOMAT created in 2014. This master between the Universities of Nantes and Angers and promoted by "la Région Pays de la Loire", envision the formation of chemists specialists of molecular materials for organic photonics and electronics.
  • For more details about LUMOMAT project see
