Institut Charles Sadron Plateformes

The team precision macromolecular chemistry (PMC) brings together cutting-edge skills in the fields of polymer chemistry and engineering. In chemistry, our activities concern the development of new synthesis strategies to precisely control the molecular structure and functionality of polymers. Polymer engineering aims at developing intensified processes for the production of finely dispersed polymer blends using different strategies notably the use of elongational mixers, but also functional feature-controlled polymeric micro- and nanoparticles. Our research targets applications as diverse as information storage, anti-counterfeiting, drug delivery and plastic recycling. These multiple skills allow us to develop original research projects within the team, but also to work with other teams present at the Institut Charles Sadron as well as with external collaborators in France or abroad.
