Prof. Dr. Clément Sanchez
Clément Sanchez is Professor at the Collège de France « Chair Chemistry of Hybrid Materials » and Director of The “Laboratoire de Chimie de la Matière Condensée de Paris” (UMR 757, University of Pierre and Marie Curie-Collège de France-CNRS). He was Director of Research at the French Council Research (CNRS) and Professor at l’Ecole Polytechnique. He received an engineer degree from l’Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie de Paris in 1978 and a “thèse d’état” (PhD) in physical chemistry from the University of Paris VI in 1981.
He did a post-doctoral work at the University of California, Berkeley, and is currently performing research at the The Collège de France in Paris. He is specialised in the field of nanochemistry and physical properties of nanostructured porous and non-porous transition metal oxide based gels and porous and non-porous hybrid organic inorganic materials shaped as monolith, microspheres and films. He was the recipient of many national and international awards and is member of several Academies of Sciences (French, European, Spanish). He was organiser of several international meetings associated to the field of soft-chemistry, hybrid materials and related bio-aspects.
