The general objective of this project is the development of a new methodological approach toward the synthesis of polyurethanes foams avoiding the isolation of carcinogenic isocyanates.
Our guiding principle will be the development of selective and mild free-radical processes, relying on cheap and readily available raw materials to trigger the formation of the urethane linkage.


-Synthesis of precursors of urethanes
-Analysis of small molecules synthesized using standard characterization techniques (NMR, UV, IR, TGA, DSC)
- Synthesis of thermoplastic and thermosetting polymers from previously synthesized precursors
-Characterization of polymers using standard techniques (SEC, NMR, IR, TGA, DSC, DMA)
-Development of foaming procedures for some of the precursors and characterization of the foams


The candidate will hold a master (or engineer diploma) or a PhD degree in chemistry with a general background and a strong interest in organic and polymer chemistry. Knowledge of the fundamentals of polymer chemistry is essential. He/she is expected to have a good practice of organic and polymer chemistry laboratory, experience in handling sensitive compounds under an inert atmosphere as well as in the application of a spectrum of diverse modern techniques (NMR, IR, SEC, MS, DSC, ATG…).

Contexte de travail

The Laboratory of Chemistry of Organic Polymers (LCPO) is a joint research unit attached to the CNRS, the University of Bordeaux and Bordeaux INP Aquitaine. The LCPO is made up of 4 research teams with nearly 150 employees, including 50 permanent staff members.
With more than 30 years of experience in polymer chemistry, LCPO research aims to:
- develop innovative methodologies for the precision synthesis of polymers, using in particular biomimetic and/or relevant approaches to the principles of green chemistry
- development of functional polymer materials by macromolecular engineering and self-assembly.

The Institute of Molecular Sciences (ISM) brings together a community of organic chemist and physico-chemists researchers interested in molecular structures, and working on their design, synthesis, characterization, reactivity and analysis in various environments.
The ISM is a Joint Research Unit CNRS/University of Bordeaux/Bordeaux INP Aquitaine, dependent on the Aquitaine Regional Delegation (DR 15).

The work of the recruited agent will be carried out in collaboration between team 2 of the LCPO directed by Henri Cramail, and the group of Yannick Landais at the ISM.

The work will be valued through patent filings and publications in journals with a high impact factor.
