Presenter Information

Olivier Herbinet


Olivier Herbinet (male) is an Associate Professor at the University of Lorraine since 2007. He is a specialist in the use of continuous flow reactors (e.g., jet-stirred reactor and flow tube reactors) for the study of gas-phase reactions (oxidation and pyrolysis) of organic compounds, using a wide range of diagnostics from gas chromatography to mass spectrometry with ionization using synchrotron radiation. These studies led to 82 peer-reviewed publications (h-factor = 31 (WoS)).
