This position is in the framework of a « Grand Programme de Recherche » from the University of Bordeaux which is named Post-Petroleum Materials (PPM).
Using mild chemical reactions to break polymers down into valuable lower-molecular-weight fragments is a very attractive approach to increase the sustainability of plastics. However, this strategy is extremely difficult for materials exhibiting a C-C backbone. The “Scissormer” project proposes the eco-conception of these C-C based polymers with an upstream assessment of their end-of-life. Indeed, new monomers will be developed to enable controlled chain cleavages by a defined process. After co-polymerization at low concentrations with classical vinylic monomers, this innovative strategy should lead to materials with similar thermomechanical properties, but improved recycling abilities when compared to standard polymers.


- Monomer syntheses
- Molecular characterizations (RMN, IR, GC…)
- Controlled radical polymerization
- Polymer characterization by classical techniques such as (SEC, NMR, TGA, DSC)
- Polymer degradation and analyses of the degradation products


- Mandatory competences in molecular and macromolecular syntheses
- Mandatory knowledge in common method for chemical characterization of small molecules and polymers

Work Context

The Laboratory of Chemistry of Organic Polymers (LCPO) is a joint research unit affiliated to the CNRS, the University of Bordeaux and the Institut Polytechnique de Bordeaux (http://www.lcpo.fr). The LCPO is organized into 4 research teams with a total strength of nearly 150 people, including about 50 permanent staff.

With over 30 years of expertise in polymer chemistry, researches at LCPO aim at:
- developing innovative methodologies for precision synthesis of polymers, using in particular biomimetic and/or green chemistry pathways
- designing functional polymer materials by macromolecular engineering and self-assembly, in the fields of renewable materials, health and energy
- establishing strong links with the socio-economy world.
The work of the recruited agent will be carried out in team 1 of the LCPO
Team 1 entitled "Catalysts and Polymerization Engineering" is headed by Frédéric Peruch. The team develops alternative synthetic strategies to "tailor-made" polymers with a special emphasis on:
- the design of activation or catalysis systems for highly selective polymerization reactions
- the development of recyclable and bio-inspired catalytic nanoreactors operating in various media, including in water
- the engineering of polymers, nanoparticles or nanostructures for targeted functions and applications.
The project will be supervised by Audrey Llevot (Assistant professor at Bordeaux INP) and Philippe Hermange (ISM) (Assistant professor at the University of Bordeaux).
The scientific production will be valorized through publications in high impact journals.
