Prix et distinctions
The Institute of Porous MAterials of Paris (IMAP) is a newly created research team dedicated to the synthesis (from the discovery to the scale-up and shaping), characterization (structural, physico-chemical) of functional porous solids, mainly Metal Organic Frameworks, and their applications in health (drug delivery, biomaterials, imaging…), energy (materials for heat transfer or photovoltaics, batteries…) and environment (CO2 capture or transformation, separation, depollution, sensing…). The group is located at the core of Paris, at the Ecole Normale Supérieure and the Ecole Supérieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielles de Paris within the frame of the Paris Research University (PSL). The team members were originally part of the Porous solids Team at Institut Lavoisier de Versailles and at the forefront of the creation of the famous MIL-n materials (Materials from Institut Lavoisier).
The team is built up from a CNRS research director (Christian Serre, head of the team), a CNRS research scientist (Antoine Tissot), a CNRS research engineer (Farid Nouar) and an Ecole Normale Supérieure research assistant (Bernard Goetz) as well as undergraduate, master, PhD students and post-doctoral fellows.
