Organic radical Chemistry team and Polymers of specialty (CROPS)
Resp. Didier Gigmes


Study and understand the radical processes involved in polymer chemistry (synthesis, degradation, stabilization, ...). To develop synthesis methodologies based on radical chemistry to obtain complex macromolecular architectures. Synthesis of polymeric materials with specific properties with applications in various fields such as the environment, energy or health.

  • physico-chemical studies (kinetics, EPR, spin-trapping)
  • organic synthesis
  • radical polymerization controlled by nitroxides
  • polymer synthesis
  • characterization of polymers in solution and in solid phase

Detailed description of the CROPS Team

Scientific positioning

The research activities of the CROPS team aim to develop synthesis methodologies mainly based on controlled radical polymerization (PRC) by nitroxides, to obtain complex macromolecular architectures...
