L02 - Polymerization-Induced Self-Assembly via Aqueous Emulsion Polymerization
UNIVERSITY CLAUDE BERNARD LYON 1, Villeurbanne, France Read more
Bernadette Charleux received a PhD degree from the University Claude Bernard in Lyon, France, under the supervision of Dr. Christian Pichot. She was working on the elaboration of functionalized particles for medical diagnostic applications. She then spent 6 months at the CNRS center of Thiais, France, working in the domain of conducting polymers. During that period she got a permanent CNRS researcher position to work in the field of cationic polymerization in the group of Prof. Jean-Pierre Vairon, at the Laboratoire de Chimie des Polymères at the University Pierre and Marie Curie, Paris, France. She received the Habilitation in 2000 and was appointed full Professor in 2001. Since september 2009, she is Professor at the University Claude Bernard Lyon 1, senior member of the Institut Universitaire de France and director of the research unit Chemistry Catalysis Polymer and Processes. In recent years she focused her research on controlled/living radical polymerization in dispersed systems and on the synthesis of amphiphilic block copolymers and their self-assembly.
L03 - What Future for Polymers Produced from Commodity Monomers in Europe – R&D to Differentiate ?
TOTAL REFINING & CHEMICALS, Saint Avold, Belgium Read more
After completing in 2000 a PhD in Polymers obtained at the Materials Science Department of the University of Louvain (Belgium) Philippe joined the Certech (a university spin-off center in Belgium) working as project manager and being involved in many different applications from Polyolefins Gamma irradiation resistance to polyvinyl butyral modification.
Philippe joined Total Elastomers Technical Support group in 2002 and then moved as block copolymers synthesis R&D manager in 2004 in the Lacq Research center (France). From 2007 to 2009 he moved back to the headquarters and managed the licensing activity of styrene (in collaboration with the Shaw Group) and Polystyrene.
Late 2009 Philippe has been in charge of the relocalization of the Styrenics R&D activity to the Feluy Research Center (Belgium) dealing with R&D and Customers technical support activity. At the same period a new activity dealing with polymer foams has been created in order to support the future expandable polystyrene business.
Starting late 2012 Philippe took the lead of a new department dealing with Polymer Materials Science in the Total Research & Technology Feluy center.
