Research Master in Molecular Inorganic Chemistry


The objectives of Master Research Molecular Inorganic Chemistry are: to propose high level teaching in inorganic chemistry, fulfilling the requirements of current research, and to train the student in research through training courses of long term in the university laboratories or the industrial sector.

Acquired Skills

The specialty “Inorganic Chemistry” trains the student to acquire and master the knowledge in the fields of molecular chemistry and organometallic chemistry of the alternative methods in advanced material synthesis. An important aspect relates to the recent developments of the specific methods of characterization. This formation will enable the student to have a thorough, deep formation and supplements the relations between structure-activity and/or structure-property at the molecule level and therefore materials.
