The IC2MP (Institute of Chemistry of Poitiers : Materials and Natural Resources) is a multidisciplinary research institute established in 2012 (Director: Sabine Petit), specialized in the study of materials (clays, catalysts, …), natural environment (water, soil, …), and reactions (natural or caused). The Institute focuses particularly on the synthesis, the decontamination and the exploitation of natural resources. The Institute depends on two institutions: the CNRS and the University of Poitiers (UMR CNRS 7285).
