Molecules, Solids and Reactivity

Progress in medicine, technology, energy and sustainability rely on the development of new molecules and chemical materials. This is the focus of the MOST division of the IMCN. The pole brings together 14 research groups and over 130 researchers working at the frontiers of chemistry in order to design, synthesize and understand the chemical systems, from the molecular to the nanoscale, needed to address the important issues facing the world.

This encompasses research in organic synthesis and methodology, medicinal chemistry, inorganic chemistry, catalysis, supramolecular chemistry, materials chemistry, crystallization, and chemical biology.

The current elected-chair of MOST is: Prof. Olivier Riant
