LJP at a glance

LJP research activities consist in Physics at the interface of with Biology and Medicine. We develop new experimental approaches to probe complex biological systems at different scales, and we develop bio-inspired systems to develop new concepts or to improve our understanding of given biological mechanisms. A large part of our research aims at exploring the response of a biological system to external perturbations. Finally, the LJP includes a theoretical component closely interacting with experimenters.

Vitrimers: Insoluble yet reshapable chemically crosslinked networks
By François Tournilhac (ESPCI, Lab. Matière molle et chimie)
September 27, 2017 at 11:00AM - Salle de séminaires 5ème étage, Tour 32-33
Vitrimers, invented in 2011, are chemically crosslinked networks characterized by the presence of exchangeable links, a feature that allows to change topology while keeping the integrity of the ...
