Le pari de la simplexité : Le simple et le complexe en synthèse organique

  title={Le pari de la simplexit{\'e} : Le simple et le complexe en synth{\`e}se organique},
  author={P. Compain},
Simplexity may be defined by the combination of simplicity and complexity within the context of a dynamic relationship between means and ends. The quest for simplicity constitutes the basis for all future challenges of organic synthesis: diversity, selectivity, green chemistry, and beauty. Due to the infinity of structures, i.e. properties, that has to be discovered, the focus of synthetic research is shifting gradually from target-oriented synthesis to diversity-oriented synthesis. A… Expand
Evolutionary Biosemiotics and Multilevel Construction Networks
The origin of life is described here as the emergence of simple self-constructing semiotic networks that progressively increased the diversity of their components and relations. Expand
Evolutionary biosemiotics and multilevel construction networks 4 5
12 In contrast to the traditional relational semiotics, biosemiotics decisively deviates towards 13 dynamical aspects of signs at the evolutionary and developmental time scales. The 14 analysis ofExpand
Semiosis and Bio-Mechanism: towards Consilience
In biosemiotics, some oppose the study of sign relations to empirical work on bio-mechanisms. Urging consilience between these views, we show the value of Alain Berthoz’s concept of simplexity. ItsExpand
Looking forward: a glance into the future of organic chemistry
What will organic chemistry do in the next forty years? This Perspective lists six tasks that have emerged during the first edition of ESYOP, a symposium devoted to the future of organic chemistry.Expand
