Agropolis Fondation




Scientific structuring platform LipPolGreen
Characterization of plant lipids and hydrophobic polymers for a green and sustainable chemistry

Welcome !

The platform, certified by the Advanced Research Thematic Network (RTRA) "Agropolis Fondation" works in the framework of green and sustainable chemistry relying on our knowledge in the field of lipid biotechnology, polymer physico-chemistry and exploration & use of molecular biodiversity from plants for biomolecule, biomaterial and biofuel productions. As part of this platform, in the context of international projects, we propose the required tools and scientific support to:

  • Characterize plant lipids and hydrophobic polymers and to study their
    molecular diversity

  • Study the speciation of mineral compounds potentially associated.

The platform is based on analytical tools (A4F-MALLS, SEC-MALLS, ICP-MS, GCxGC-MS, GC-MS, HPLC-MS), associated with the competences and the equipments of the hosting group (Joint Research Unit on Agropolymer Engineering and Emerging Technologies, UMR IATE).
