Lignocellulosic biomass is a low-cost and environmentally-friendly resource that can be used to produce biofuels such as bioethanol and biogas, which are the leading candidates for the partial substitution of fossil fuels. However, the main challenge of using lignocellulosic materials for biofuel production is the low accessibility to cellulose for...
Chapter
Renewable resources obtained via sustainable methodologies provide an alternative to reduce the dependency on fossil resources. Lignin is the second most abundant class of macromolecules on earth. This complex biopolymer is the major source of phenolic compounds since its precursors are three types of phenylpropane units (or monolignols), i.e., con...

Azobenzenes are photochromic molecules that possess a large range of applications. Their syntheses are usually simple and fast, and their purifications can be easy to perform. Oligosaccharide is also a wide family of biopolymer constituted of linear chain of saccharides. It can be extracted from biomass, as for cellulose, being the principal consti...
Article
Hydrophobic organic soil contaminants such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) are poorly mobile in the aqueous phase and tend to sorb to the soil matrix, resulting in low bioavailability. Some filamentous fungi are efficient in degrading this kind of pollutants. However, the mechanism of mobilization of hydrophobic compounds by non-motile mi...
Article
Among the photochromes superfamily, azobenzene subgroup is the most extensively produced and used scaffold for many applications. However, the emergence of MDR (multi-drug resistant) bacterial strains brought to light the urgent need of efficient antimicrobial molecules. In that context, this review aims to compile the different approaches coupling...
Article
Sustainable biorefinery concepts based on lignocellulosic biomass are gaining worldwide research interest because of their inexpensiveness and abundance. The recalcitrance of lignocellulosic biomass poses a major hindrance to enhance biofuel production. Therefore, a pretreatment step is critical to prepare the substrates for the downstream process....

In plant, disease control is largely based on the use of chemical compounds. However, the hazardous effect of these chemicals or their degradation products on the environment and human health strongly necessitates the search for new harmless means of disease control. The project BIFUN aims at discovering new candidates as biosourced fungicides to c...
Chapter
Many pollutants of interest are classified as hydrophobic organic compounds (HOC) due to their low solubility in water. Some of these pollutants such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) and some pesticides specifically raise health and environmental concerns due to their persistence and chronic toxicity. Since HOC in soils tend to strongly so...
Article
BACKGROUND Research into environmentally friendly alternatives to conventional plant protection products, to promote sustainable agriculture and healthy food, is strongly encouraged. RESULTS In this context, 20 naturally occurring terpenoids and phenolic compounds were selected and evaluated in vitro as crop protection compounds against Zymoseptor...

Lignin is the principal natural source of phenolics but its structural complexity and variability make it difficult to valorize through chemical depolymerization approaches. White rots are one of the rare groups of organisms that are able to degrade lignin in ecosystems. This biodegradation starts through extracellular enzymes producing oxidizing a...
Article
New bio-based molecularly imprinted polymers (MIPs) were synthesized as biopesticide delivery systems by free radical polymerization using a functional monomer and a vegetable oil-derived cross-linker, epoxidized soybean oil acrylate (ESOA). Resveratrol, a polyphenol with antifungal activity against several phytopathogens, was employed in this stud...

Soil fungi have the ability to form large mycelial networks. They rely on the resources available in the soil to produce biomass and are able to degrade complex biomolecules. Some of them can even degrade recalcitrant organic pollutants and are considered as promising candidates for soil bioremediation strategies. However, the success of this appro...
Article
The growing uses of functional polymers in different domains and the well-established remanence of synthetic polymers underline the necessity to study their microbial biodegradation. A phylloplane bacterial collection was screened for its potential to overcome documented factors limiting polymer biodegradation, i.e. low cleavable long chain linear...
Article
Twenty-eight 5-pyrrolidine-2-ones decorated by hydrazine or acyl hydrazones groups have been designed, synthesized and evaluated as antifungal agents on a panel of twelve fungal strains and three non albicans candida yeasts species which have demonstrated reduced susceptibility to commonly used antifungal drugs. Half of the target compounds exhibit...

With the emergence of multi-drug resistant bacteria and hospital-acquired infections, there is an urgent need to develop new antibiotics. Here, we report the synthesis, physico-chemical characterizations, and antimicrobial activity assays of four Azo compounds that differ in their alkyl chain length. The molecular mechanism of their antibacterial a...
Article
Botrytis cinerea is a necrotrophic fungus that affects various plant species. Chemical control is a necessity and as much as possible, eco-friendly conditions and bioresources to obtain these chemicals should be used. In this context, a series of products was obtained from salicylaldehyde using zinc as a powerful reagent and tested for antifungal a...

Purpose Remediation of contaminated soils is of high relevance considering losses of this limited resource in most countries through erosion or through destruction for societal purposes. Most physicochemical remediation techniques lead to soil destruction avoiding reuse of the sites and loss of soil functions including ecological services like wate...
Conference Paper
Bioremediation appears as a relatively low-cost solution for the restoration of soils contaminated with persistent organic pollutants. Among these pollutants, high molecular weight polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) display a high resistance to degradation and low bioavailability. Filamentous fungi are known for their ability to degrade compl...
Conference Paper
The excessive use of chemical pesticides in agriculture represents health care and environmental concerns. A possible alternative to fight against phytopathogens is the use of biopesticides such as secondary metabolites or enzymes. But the stabilization of those molecules to obtain long term and higher efficiency on plant is still an issue. One pro...
