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: Researchers develop method to transfer entire 2D circuits to any smooth surface

What if a sensor sensing a thing could be part of the thing itself? Rice University engineers believe they have a two-dimensional solution to do just that.

Rice engineers led by materials scientists Pulickel Ajayan and Jun Lou have developed a method to make atom-flat sensors that seamlessly integrate with devices...

Im Focus: Three components on one chip

Scientists at the University of Stuttgart and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) succeed in important further development on the way to quantum Computers.

Quantum computers one day should be able to solve certain computing problems much faster than a classical computer. One of the most promising approaches is...

Im Focus: Substitute for rare earth metal oxides

New Project SNAPSTER: Novel luminescent materials by encapsulating phosphorescent metal clusters with organic liquid crystals

Nowadays energy conversion in lighting and optoelectronic devices requires the use of rare earth oxides.

Im Focus: A bit of a stretch... material that thickens as it's pulled

Scientists have discovered the first synthetic material that becomes thicker - at the molecular level - as it is stretched.

Researchers led by Dr Devesh Mistry from the University of Leeds discovered a new non-porous material that has unique and inherent "auxetic" stretching...

Im Focus: The force of the vacuum

Scientists from the Theory Department of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) in Hamburg have shown through theoretical calculations and computer simulations that the force between electrons and lattice distortions in an atomically thin two-dimensional superconductor can be controlled with virtual photons. This could aid the development of new superconductors for energy-saving devices and many other technical applications.

The vacuum is not empty. It may sound like magic to laypeople but it has occupied physicists since the birth of quantum mechanics.
