Emeritus Research Director
Alain TRESSAUD is Emeritus Research Director at ICMCB-CNRS, Bordeaux University. He is President of the European Academy of Sciences (Brussels) and member of several European Academies. He founded and chaired until 2008 the French CNRS Network on Fluorine Chemistry. Among the awards he received, the Atomic Centre Agency (CEA) Award of French Academy of Sciences (2008), ACS Fluorine Award (2011) and Moissan Prize (2013) can be quoted. His scientific interest covers synthetic fluorine chemistry, physical-chemical characterizations, applications in materials sciences, solid state chemistry. His works also deal with surface modification of materials and intercalation chemistry. His scientific production includes more than 360 papers in international journals, 20 chapters contributions in books and 12 internationalized patents. In addition, he edited 10 books, including the Editor-in-Chief responsibility of the book series “Advances in Fluorine Science” Elsevier (2006), “Progress in Fluorine Science”, Elsevier (2015 →), ”Progress in Science, Progress in Society”, Springer-Nature, (2017).
