Solid state chemistry is a very special field in chemical sciences because of its multidisciplinary nature. It associates synthesis, characterization, modelization and the study of physical properties and has a strong societal impact.
Research in solid state chemistry has resulted in the emergence of key technologies in the field of energy, health, communications... The challenge now is to discover the new materials that will support the technologies of the future.
The goals of the Solid State Chemistry (SSC) Division are :
- To promote and acknowledge solid state chemistry by supporting its national and international outreach activities.
- To communicate especially towards young researchers about the activities of the French Chemical Society, and in particular of the SSC Division through dedicated meetings (Young researchers forum, PhD students symposium) and attribution of an annual PhD award.
