Work Context

Created in 1995, the Bordeaux Institute of Condensed Matter Chemistry (ICMCB)
focuses its research on Solid Chemistry, Materials Science and
Molecular Sciences: designing, preparing, shaping and characterizing
materials to discover, master and optimize specific functions.
The ICMCB carries out fundamental research on model materials and / or
likely to have applications.
The complementarity of the approaches and the synergy thus created have enabled the Institute
consolidate its national and international position in the field of materials.
