Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, France
Prof. Dominique Luneau completed his PhD in coordination chemistry in 1987 under supervision of Prof. Jean-Pierre Tuchagues in Toulouse (France). Then he joined the group of Prof. Sigeo Kida as a JSPS fellow at the Institute of Molecular Sciences in Okazaki (Japan) until his hiring as a CNRS researcher in Grenoble (France) to develop the coordination chemistry of nitronyl nitroxide radicals. In 2002, he was hired as Professor in crystallography at Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1. He deals mainly with coordination chemistry and crystallography of molecule-based magnetic materials and the study of magneto-structural relationships. In 2016, the Coordination Chemistry Division of the French Chemical Society awarded him for his contribution in the field.
