A new continuous processing technology used to produce medical nanodrugs


 Recently, researchers belonging to the Research Unit focussing on Nanomaterials for Systems under Extreme Stress (NS3E) run jointly by the French-German Research Institute of Saint-Louis and the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) as well as the University of Strasbourg developed a new continuous processing technology used for an industrial-scale production of organic or organometallic nano co-crystals with perfectly controlled size and composition. This method is protected by three patents at international level and is a decisive step towards mass production of medical nanodrugs, energetic nanomaterials as well as organic and organometallic nano-scale materials. The results were published in...

Research on the detection of pollutants has been granted


Denis Spitzer, scientist at the French-German Research Institute of Saint-Louis (ISL) and Dr. Beth Pruitt of the Stanford Microsystems Laboratory have been granted the special award of 10’000 $ by the Interdisciplinary Centre France Stanford. This award will help to finance the common collaboration in the field of “Nanomaterial functionalization for high performance multifunctional integrated environmental sensing”. The project unites complementary competencies and laboratories in engineering and materials chemistry to develop an integrated process for nanostructured sensing materials and electronic devices enabling multi-species, sensitive and selective sensors. These nanostructured chemical “noses” will sniff for contaminants such as carbon monoxide, sulfates, and...

The French-German Research Institute of Saint-Louis is a binational research institute established by the Federal Republic of Germany and the French Republic on the basis of a treaty signed in 1958. The core mission of ISL is: "Research, scientific studies and basic predevelopment in the field of defense and security.

The classical working areas of ISL include: laser-matter interaction, laser development, detonics, perforation, protection, ballistics, the environment and protection of the soldier, acoustics, power electronics, high-power microwaves, aerodynamics and flight mechanics, optronics, sensors.

ISL has reinforced its activities on issues of civil security and countermeasures against terrorism encountered both at home and during overseas military operations.

The institute is situated in Southern Alsace near the German and Swiss borders.
