Institut de Chimie Moléculaire et des Matériaux d'Orsay

The director's word

Welcome to the ICMMO website. The Institut de Chimie Moléculaire et des Matériaux d’Orsay is one of the largest CNRS-labelled chemistry research laboratories in France. With a workforce of over 300, the areas of research covered by the 9 research teams include organic and inorganic chemistry, molecular and materials sciences, and feature strong interfaces with both life sciences and physics. Integrated in the Science Campus of Paris-Sud University, ICMMO contributes to the emergence of the new Paris-Saclay University.
