Mesoscopic Modelling and Theoretical Chemistry Laboratory (LMCT)

The main topics for the LMCT team concern the study of complex systems, and especially those involved in the separation chemistry. To this end, multiscale approaches are preferred, with a peculiar interest for the modelling at mesoscopic scales.

The Institute for Separation Chemistry in Marcoule (ICSM)

Created in January 2007, the Marcoule Institute in Separation Chemistry (ICSM) is a Joint Research Unit (UMR 5257) between the the French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS), the University of Montpellier (UM) and the National Graduate School of Chemistry in Montpellier (ENSCM). ICSM is composed of 3 research axes gathering 8 research teams working in close collaboration (see the 2019-2022 scientific report, pdf format).

It is also attached to the Balard chemistry cluster, which brings together the four Montpellier chemistry institutes, including the Institut Européen des Membranes (IEM), the Institut Charles Gerhardt de Montpellier (ICGM) and the Institut des Biomolécules Max Mousseron (IBMM).

Integrated into the MUSE chemistry cluster and the Institute of Sciences and Technologies for a Circular Economy of Low-Carbon Energies (ISEC) of the CEA's Energy Direction (CEA/DES), the ICSM aims to develop fundamental research whose main objective is to "propose choices" for the development of separative chemistry processes applied to the field of decarbonized energies, by integrating the challenges of a sustainable nuclear energy and the circular economy.
