|Event Name||NuMat2016: The Nuclear Materials Conference

Le Corum Congress Center
|Description||There are 3 main research areas in the Charles Gerhardt Institute:
•From molecule to material: molecular chemistry, macromolecular and supramolecular, self- organization, nano-structuration, hybrid materials, nano-materials
•Advanced materials: applications for energy, environment, sustainable development, health
•Modelling: structures, properties and reactivity of molecules and materials
The Marcoule Institute for Separative Chemistry fundamental research is structured along several transverse axes:
•Deeper understanding the processes used for ionic, isotopic or molecular separation
•Studying the cycle of chemical and / or physical-chemical processes related to the lifetime of the material and fluid associated: understanding the relationship between structure (electronic, composition, microstructure, nano-organization ...) and reactivity (dissolution, physical stress ...) of solid compounds and materials associated such as nuclear fuel models.
•Maintaining the separation in the storage or disposal materials: studying and modelling the transfers at the solid-liquid interface.
Developing green chemistry processes.
These institutes work in partnership with CEA Marcoule (100 km from Montpellier). Within the CEA’s Nuclear Energy Division, Marcoule is the reference center for research on the nuclear fuel cycle: separation by radiochemical processes, vitrification process, development of the 4th generation of nuclear power.
