A WORD FROM THE DIRECTOR

Since its creation in 1985, the Laboratoire de Chimie des Polymères Organiques (LCPO) has been focusing its academic research in Polymer Science on the mechanisms of polymerization and macromolecular engineering.
While these two domains are still the background of our activity, important projects are oriented towards the design of functional high value-added polymers and the study of their macroscopic properties for target applications, in particular in the domains of life sciences, energy and technology. Green and biomimetic synthetic approaches together with the understanding of structure/properties relationships are presenting the core of our scientific strategy.

LCPO in a nutshell

The laboratory is a joint research unit (UMR5629) of the University of Bordeaux, CNRS, and Bordeaux National Polytechnic Institute. The LCPO is located on two sites, one at the ENSCBP, one at the B8 building of the campus of the University of Bordeaux. LCPO employs around 120 people, among which 7 CNRS researchers, 18 assistant, associate, and full professors of the University of Bordeaux and Bordeaux National Polytechnic Institute, 15 administrative and scientific staff members, and around 80 PhD students, post-doctoral fellows and visitors.

LCPO highlights

Pr Georges Hadziioannou and his team at LCPO (Topic 4) won the 2013 Prize of the French science magazine "La Recherche" in the chemistry category for their work on the use of block copolymers to stabilize organic photovoltaic cells (OPV), published in Advanced Materials in April 2012. Wath the video of their prize recipiency! Recent highlights on printed transparent electrodes for flexible OLED and OPV devices have been reported in the OSADIRECT newsletter.

An exclusive license on a Nanotechnology which improves the efficacy of anti-tumoral agents by targeting their action into tumors has been signed on December 9th, 2013 between Adocia and LCPO. This technology based on polysaccharide-b-polypeptide block copolymers was developed in the team of Pr Sébastien Lecommandoux (Topic 3).

Pr Georges Hadziioannou's team (Topic 4) takes part to the European PLACYD consortium led by Arkema to adress direct self-assembly (DSA) nano-lithography.
