Scientific and Technical Training Facilities

The Institute of Organic and Analytical chemistry – ICOA UMR 7311 – has implemented through the CNRS Formation Entreprises scientific education programmes.

These programmes are categorized in four modules which are:


Preparative and analytical supercritical fluid chromatography (Green chemistry)


  • Learn the principles of supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC), an efficient method that fits into the context of sustainable development.
  • Develop analytical or preparative methods with ease and speed.
  • Transpose normal and reverse phase high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) separation techniques to SFC for chiral and achiral molecules.
Planned dates of traineeships: from Monday 11 to Tuesday 12 December 2017 or Thursday 14 to Friday 15 June 2018
Registration 2017 Registration 2018


Extraction and analysis of bioactive plant


  • Depending families targeted compounds, namely the development of extraction methods, fractionation / purification and separation
  • Knowing how to choose and use the various detection systems
Planned dates of traineeships: from Monday 4 June to Thursday 7 June 2018


Interactions contents / container


  • Awareness of packaging (plastics, metals, etc.) and manufacturing additives along with the methods enabling the modeling of their migration.
  • Acquire a broad vision of the extraction methods for packaging matrices ((supercritical fluid extraction (SFE), pressurized fluid extraction (PFE), liquid-liquid extraction (LLE), solid phase extraction (SPE), solid phase microextraction (SPME), stir bar sorptive extraction (SBSE)) and be able to analyse (gaz chromatography (GC), HPLC) the migrating molecules.
  • Understanding of European and North American regulations.
  • Integrate the methods developed in good laboratory practices (GLP).
Planned dates of traineeships: from Monday 27 to Wednesday 29 November 2017


Biological sample analysis: preparation, separation, detection and validation

objectives :

  • To acquire a broad knowledge of the methods used in the field of bioanalysis according to the properties of the targeted compounds and of the analyzed biological matrix
  • Master the techniques of pretreatment and extraction / concentration
  • Be able to perform a separation and detection according to the requirements of quantification and structural identification
  • Know how to validate by applying statistical tests according to current regulations and GLP (Good Laboratory Practice)
Planned dates of traineeships: from Tuesday 21 to Friday 24 November 2017 or from Tuesday 20 to Friday 23 November 2018
