Master 2 mention Chimie, parcours Green and Sustainable Catalysis

groupe d'étudiants et d'étudiantes en situation de travaux pratique dans un laboratoire de chimie


The aim of this programme is to train and form high level graduates in the field of catalysis and sustainable chemistry and of the synthesis of organic and organometallic molecules and molecular materials in the context of the development of new products and new eco-compatible processes. Catalysis is the most interdisciplinary technology in the chemical industry and is involved in many industrial applications such as fine chemicals, materials, energy, etc.). Additionally, catalysis is a cornerstone in the environmental protection (recycling of waste and reduction of greenhouse gases). Graduated will be involved in the development of green and sustainable future.

Et après ?

Devenir des diplômés

Throughout the two years master's program, students benefit from individual and/or collective support for professional integration, offered by SOIE department and the teachers.

During the week dedicated to professional integration and entrepreneurship, they build their personal project in a wide range of workshops, conferences, speed-meetings, and business forums. The teaching teams, with the strong support of the Rennes 1 Foundation, set up sponsorships, meetings with professionals, company visits, conferences specific to each training course.

Poursuite d'études

Graduates from the Green and Sustainable Catalysis programme can enter directly in the “work life” or start a PhD in chemistry within the laboratories of the University of Rennes, and the laboratories of other French or foreign universities (Germany, Switzerland, UK, Netherlands, Sweden, etc.)

Types de métiers

The graduates can work in academia or industry as R&D engineers, production chemical engineers, industrial production managers, etc...

Recherche & international

Lien avec la recherche

This program is associated to the Institute of Chemical Sciences of Rennes (ISCR), one of the largest research centers in chemistry, recognized by the CNRS. The ISCR has strong recognition at the highest international level with numerous associated international laboratories (China, Chile, India, Australia).

This master also associated to ScanMat federative service unit (Synthesis, Characterization, Analysis, Molecules, Materials) which integrates different platforms such as the Research Center for Physical.

Measurements of the West (CRMPO), the Center for Diffractometry and the Center for Innovation and Technological Research (CRIT).

Echanges internationaux

Internships can be performed in foreign countries, notably thanks to Erasmus program.

Organisation pédagogique

The first semester is organized to provide fundamental knowledge on catalysis, molecular materials (synthesis & applications), polymers and biodegradable polymers, green and sustainable chemistry). The students will have to perform a team green project with the target to reinvent a greener synthesis of a molecule or process.). Lectures will be given physically.

The second semester is dedicated to the Master thesis (30 ECTS).

Modalités d'évaluation

Examination terms & conditions

The aptitudes and the acquisition of knowledge and skills of the Teaching Units (UE) are done by a
final examination.

Validation of the master diploma

The master diploma is obtained by validation of the 2 years of master (Master 1 and Master 2)
which correspond the acquisition of 120 ECTS credits.
