ABOUT US

The PHOTON DROP project brings together academic partners having complementary skills and expertise in the use and synthesis of NHCs, photopolymerization, ROMP, ROP and polymerization in dispersed media. It involves 3 french academic laboratories:

-  Institut Charles Gerhardt de Montpellier (ICGM)

- Institut de Science des Matériaux de Mulhouse (IS2M)

- Laboratoire de Chimie des Polymères Organiques (LCPO)

If you are interested by the project or part of the project and would like to collaborate with us, don't hesitate to contact us by filling the form in the following page: Get Involved
