The Institute of Porous Materials from Paris is a new laboratory created end of 2016 between Ecole Normale Superieure and the Industrial Physics and Chemistry engineer school (ESPCI). The team is built up from 4 permanent staff members: two CNRS researchers, one CNRS research engineer and one laboratory assistant from ENS.
The group’s activities are focused around
- the design and characterization (structural, physico-chemical) of new functional and robust porous hybrid solids (MOFs),
- their scale-up and shaping under green conditions
- their potential applications in energy, environment and health
