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:


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: Monday, June 3 to Thursday, June 7, 2019 (5 days) or Monday, June 3 to Thursday, June 6, 2019 (4 days)
Registration (5days), Registration (4 days)


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: Tuesday 26 to Friday 29 November 2019
