Molecular Chemistry (MOL) Program

The Molecular Chemistry (MOL) program offers a set of teaching units for comprehensive, solid training in the design and development of molecular tools in a wide range of sectors, from energy to health and the environment.

Molecular Chemistry (MOL) Program


The MOL program focuses on the molecule and developing its properties to meet challenges in the future. It is a question of imagining and then preparing molecules, whether organic, organometallic, inorganic or of biological interest, whose properties need to be understood and controlled.

Through the teaching units (UE), students acquire solid knowledge of modern synthesis concepts and methods, and become aware of the challenges of green chemistry and the use of bio-resources. Students understand and choose methods for characterizing the products synthesized, establish the structure-property relationships of molecules and evaluate their potential applications, whether technological or biological.


Specializations in this field and its interfaces

The skills of MOL graduates depend on the combination of UEs they choose. All graduates take the majority of their UEs from MOL program, but some specializations require UEs from other programs.


Specialization profile    On completion of this specialization, students will be able to...
Catalysis: synthesis, reactivity and processes    Master theoretical concepts and experimental methods in the field of catalysis.
Chemistry and biology    Develop chemical strategies to analyze, influence or exploit biological processes.
Industrial molecular chemistry    Design, synthesize and characterize molecules on laboratory and industrial scales.
Molecular modeling and applications    Model molecular systems or materials to interpret and predict their behavior.
Inorganic synthesis    Design, develop and characterize inorganic compounds with targeted properties.
Organic synthesis    Design, develop and characterize organic compounds with targeted properties.
