In a first-rate scientific environment

Chimie ParisTech is a multidisciplinary research center organized around two fundamental themes :

  • Energy, materials and process engineering (Moissan department)
  • Molecular chemistry (Friedel department)

Research and technological innovation are in close relation with scientific training.


A “school” with a prestigious history

The school was founded in 1896 by Charles Friedel, chemist and mineralogist, co-discoverer of the famous Friedel-Crafts reaction. Henri Moissan, director of Chimie ParisTech between 1899 and 1907, was awarded the Nobel prize in chemistry in 1906 for the isolation of fluorine and the development of a high temperature furnace.
