2022 RSC/SCF Joint Lectureship in Chemical Sciences Winner
Professor Rodolphe Clérac, CNRS - Université de Bordeaux
Awarded for the development of new research areas in molecular magnetism and contributions to the study of magnetic materials.
Professor Clérac’s team build matter from the atomic level using metals and organic molecules in order to organise them to promote one or several targeted physical properties. This requires a strong synergy between the chemistry and physics of these systems. It is this duality that fascinates Professor Clérac and inspires his research work on molecule-based magnetic materials and molecular magnets. His group’s work offers broad prospects for the preparation of a new generation of lightweight magnetic materials that could be applied within aeronautics, space or mobile technologies and the electronics of tomorrow.
