CED2 Carnot Institute

who we are

The research interests of CED2 teams are centred on the elaboration, characterisation and the functional properties of molecules and materials for applications in energy and fuel production, "Green Chemistry", resources conservation, protection of the environment and health:

  • energy with inorganic and polymer membranes for fuel cell applications, catalytic materials, materials for electrochemical energy storage, synthetic fuels and biofuels, hydrogen,
  • protection of the environment through the implementation of “green and sustainable chemistry": process intensification, catalysis to prevent and palliate pollution, degradable biopolymers, chemicals and materials from renewables, inorganic and polymer functional membranes, separation with membrane processes,
  • health research into development of biomolecules, biomaterials, biopolymers and hybrids and composites, nanostructured materials for the transport and controlled release of drugs.
