Research institute in Molecular Chemistry
UMR CNRS 6230
The CEISAM Institute (Interdisiplnary Chemistry: Synthesis, Analysis, Modelling) was founded in 2008, in order to structure Nantes Molecular Chemistry (theoretical chemistry, organic / organometallic synthesis, analytical chemistry & physicochemistry).
The MIMM team of the Laboratory has just designed an innovative method for isotope analysis at natural abundance, based on NMR (1).For the first time, this approach is evaluated according to the criteria of green analytical chemistry. The method developed by scientists from the MIMM team consists of using the 2D HSQC NMR sequence, modified...
A research team (1) from the CEISAM laboratory (Chemistry and Interdisciplinarity: Synthesis, Analysis, Modelling – Nantes University/CNRS) has developed a new approach for studying biological samples using nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). This breakthrough opens up a wide range of prospects, both in terms of analytical chemistry developments and applications in many other fields (personalized medicine,...
Two scientists of the MIMM team of the CEISAM laboratory have edited a book on fast 2D solution-state NMR, that was just published by the Royal Society of Chemistry. Written by active investigators in the field, this book describes state-of-the-art methods that can accelerate the acquisition of 2D NMR spectra in solution-state. The acquisition of...
Our research teams
This Institute is organized into five research teams covering coherent areas of activity but which are based on different and highly complementary segments, giving rise to original transversal projects.
On the basis of fundamental and specific expertise, CEISAM is positioned in a certain number of niches of excellence at the interface with the fields of Health, Food chemistry and Materials, through privileged interactions at regional, national and international levels.
Platforms and equipment
To support our research activities, the CEISAM Institute owns many specialist equipments.
These instruments and equipment chains, sometimes intégrated into platforms, aim to synthesize, model, prepare and characterize organic or hybrid items. The European Union, the CNRS and the "Pays de la Loire" region have largely contributed to co-financing these platforms and equipments in particular in NMR, Mass Spectrometry, Molecular Modeling, Optical spectroscopies and microscopy.
