Today, E2P2L is composed of 8 full time Solvay researchers, 2 CNRS researchers, 7 postdocs, 2 PhD students and hosts several master students throughout the year. This team is dedicated to the study and design of new catalytic systems. Beside this team, E2P2L is strong of an application team composed of 5 Solvay researchers focusing on Eco-Formulation.
Thanks to this set-up E2P2L assembled a very strong multi-disciplinary team capable of developing new breakthrough ways of making molecules but also how to use them.
The team is very diverse with 7 nationalities, many different specialties and competences (organic & organometallic chemistry, inorganic chemistry, polymer chemistry, physical chemistry, theoretical chemistry, catalysis, chemical engineering…) and most of the members had a significant international experience. As a result, English is our working language and Chinese our second language.
