The LCPO in a few words

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.


The LCPO is a joint research unit of the CNRS, the University of Bordeaux and Bordeaux INP. Organised into four teams, the core of the laboratory's activities is the study of polymerisation reactions and the development of innovative methodologies in chemistry, chemical engineering and physical chemistry of polymers. The LCPO relies on its know-how, skills and innovation ability in polymer science to take up the scientific challenges of today and tomorrow, particularly in the fields of catalysis and renewable materials, life sciences and biomaterials, as well as energy and communication technologies
