Creation of two French-Chinese International Associated Laboratories in chemistry

15.12.2008
CNRS and its French partners have just signed into existence two International Associated Laboratories (LIA) with China: the Matériaux organophosphorés fonctionnels laboratory and the French-Chinese catalysis laboratory.

CNRS, Université de Rennes 1 and Zhengzhou University (in Henan province) have created the International Associated Laboratory "Matériaux organophosphorés fonctionnels" (LIA MOF).

This LIA brings together the Sciences chimiques de Rennes (1) laboratory and a Chinese laboratory, International Phosphorus Laboratory, which is already headed by a CNRS researcher, François Mathey. The objective of the association is to synthesize new phosphorus compounds for future developments in plastic electronics (flat screens, cellphones...).

The two teams involved in the project have complementary know-how in thie field: François Mathey's team in Zhengzhou has vast experience in the synthesis, property analysis and reactivity of complex phosphorus derivatives. Régis Réau's team in Rennes has expertise in the synthesis and physico-chemical study of polymers and metal compounds incorporating phosphorus units. Their association will enable the LIA to move into a leading position internationally in this rapidly evolving research field.

The French Chinese catalysis laboratory is also becoming an International Associated Laboratory, called LIA LFCC. This LIA brings together CNRS, Université Claude Bernard of Lyon-Lyon 1, Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (DICP, Chinese Academy of Science) and a Chinese industrial partner, the Research Institute of Petroleum Processing (RIPP). This LIA involves three main partners: the State Key Laboratory of Catalysis in Dalian, the RIPP laboratory in Beijing and the Institut de recherches sur la catalyse et l'environnement de Lyon (IRCELYON, CNRS / Université de Lyon 1). The research concerns catalysis for energy and hydrotreatment.

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.

Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
