Sylvain Caillol is Research Director at CNRS. He graduated engineer from the National Graduate School of Chemistry of Montpellier in 1998 and then received his M. Sc. Degree in Chemistry from the University of Montpellier. He received his PhD degree in 2001 from the University of Bordeaux. Subsequently he joined Rhodia Company. Later, promoted Department Manager, he headed the Polymer Research Department in the Research Center of Paris. In 2007, he joined the CNRS at the Institute Charles Gerhardt of the University of Montpellier where he started a new research topic dedicated to Green Chemistry and Biobased Polymers. He is co-author of more than 200 articles, patents and book chapters – H-index 43/50 (Scopus/Google Sch). He won the Green Materials Prize in 2018 and 2020 and was nominated Pioneering Investigator by the Royal Society of Chemistry in 2019.
Main expertise: Biobased polymers and step growth polymerization
Prof. Dr. Vincent Ladmiral
Ladmiral is Research Scientist at CNRS. He graduated from the from the National Engineering School of Chemistry of Montpellier and received his M. Sc. Degree in Chemistry from the University of Montpellier in 1998. After a short career in the private sector as management consultant, he got his PhD degree from the University of Warwick, UK in 2006. He then worked as a post-doctoral research associate at University of Kyoto, Japan, University of Sydney, Australia, University of New South Wales, Australia and University of Sheffield, UK. He was recruited in 2012 by CNRS and he since then develops research activities in the fields of fluoropolymers, colloids and self-assembly, covalent adaptable networks, and more recently to polymers and materials with lower health and environmental impact. He coauthored about 100 papers (h-index = 29).
Main expertise: Emulsion polymerization and vitrimers.
