The 3DECON project, supported by the Dassault Systems Foundation, focuses on the use of continuous flow microreactors designed using 3D technology to decontaminate chemical warfare agents (CWA). The recruited person will be responsible for designing and testing microfluidic reactors for neutralizing organophosphorus and organosulfur agents. All tests will only be performed on mimes of legal CWA and reduced toxicity.

Work Context

The research work will take place in the COBRA UMR CNRS 6014 laboratory (University of Rouen Normandy/INSA of Rouen Normandy/CNRS) located in the IRCOF building of the Mont-Saint-Aignan site (website under construction:, and more particularly within the MESOO team.
The work will be supervised by Julien LEGROS, Research Director at the CNRS.

Constraints and risks

Work in organic chemistry with simulants of chemical warfare agents, with the usual constraints of organic chemistry (work under ventilated fume hood, personal protective equipment,...).
