PROJET NACRE : Nucléation de phases Chirales

Symmetry breaking (or Viedma ripening) is an attractive method to purify enantiomers, because the yield can theoretically be 100% of a single enantiomer. However, which of the two enantiomers will be obtained depends on which enantiomer will nucleate first. NACRE will investigate the early stages of crystallisation and aims to find out how to control nucleation and crystallisation of the desired enantiomer using among other methods vibrational circular dichroism.

Durée du projet : 01/09/2019 - 30/09/2021

Project Number: 722456 CORE




PROJET CoRe (Continuous Resolution and Deracemization of Chiral Compounds by Crystallization)

CORE  is a four year Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN) on  which started on the 1 October 2016. CORE brings together 8 beneficiary partners and 6 associate partners from 6 European countries resulting in an unparalleled combination of chirality, synthesis and crystallization training and research covering the areas of Chemical Engineering, Chemistry and Applied Physics.

The CORE network employs 15 Early stage researchers (ESRs) on a challenging research-training programme, which is to be completed with a PhD thesis. The CORE network will provide excellent infrastructure, is well equipped with state-of-the-art technologies, and has substantial knowledge and experience from eminent senior academics in the field.  In addition to hands-on training in multidisciplinary and intersectoral research, ESRs will be provided with extensive transferable skills training through network-wide training events. A key component of the training is that Early Stage Researchers will undertake secondments with Academic and Industrial Partners. 


Project start date : 1 October 2016 for 48 months

People involved in the project :


3 ESRs (PhD Students : Ryusei OKETANI, Lina HARFOUCHE, Aliou MBODJI)

From Monday 3rd to Wednesday 5th September 2018, the SMS laboratory organized the "CORE Workshop 2018 and Mid-term Review Meeting" as part of the ITN CoRe European project

-Projet ANR - CYPRES - 30th june 2019 to 30 june 2023

Detail of the project:

The overall objective of the project is to evaluate the performance of scCO2 at controlling crystal phase purity using experimental approaches of microfluidic and batch with insights into time-related events.

The crystal phase purity considered in this project covers (i) the fabrication of co-crystal pure powders (ii) the preparation of pure enantiomers of chiral substances by preferential crystallization, both topics of primary importance for material properties and in continual development in industrial crystallization. Time-related events consist in the mixing of solvent and antisolvent, the contact between crystals and CO2, the crystallization induction time, the habit conversion and crystal growth. Since selective crystallization is controlled by phase equilibria and kinetic aspects, the use of CO2 offers a unique flexibility to vary conditions via the pressure parameter, the modality of the CO2 introduction and the adaptable composition of the CO2:solvent mixture that are likely to impact the structural and purity of products.
