Developing research for a sustainable nuclear industry and alternative energies

Zoom On


Be on the agenda

PhD defense of Mathilde COQUIL

Mathilde COQUIL (LMCT) will defend her Ph.D. dissertation entitled "Energetic contributions for liquid-liquid extraction" on Monday, December 6, 2021 at 1.30 pm (ICSM Auditorium).

PhD defense of Sayed-Ali MOUSSAOUI

Sayed-Ali MOUSSAOUI (LHYS) will defend his Ph.D. dissertation entitled "Liquid/liquid separation governed by kinetics" on Wednesday, December 15, 2021 at 10.00 am (ICSM Auditorium).


Ions at Active Interfaces Laboratory (L2IA)

Objective of the team: to understand and solve interfacial issues which is mainly declined for transfer at the liquid / liquid and liquid / air interfaces, taking into account the speciation in solution.




The Institute for Separation Chemistry in Marcoule (ICSM)

Created in January 2007, the Institut de Chimie Séparative de Marcoule (ICSM) is a Joint Research Unit (UMR 5257) between the Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique et aux Energies Alternatives (CEA), the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), the University of Montpellier (UM) and the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Montpellier (ENSCM). ICSM is composed of 8 research teams or laboratories working in close collaboration.

Separation chemistry, a branch of physical chemistry, is a key part of the "green chemistry". The science required is the emerging "Nanoscience" as defined by Bernard Bigot (Haut-Commissaire à l’Energie Atomique at the launching of the ICSM as a project in July 2004). The last scientific report 2017-20 (click here to read it) gives an overview of the recent work published. The 8 active research teams still work in the direction of the scientific open questions as defined and published by the French Academy in 2007.
