Metrohm Young Chemist Award France: Meet the Winners!

Mesdames et Messieurs,

On September 21th, we at Metrohm France held the award ceremony for the Metrohm Young Chemist Award France (MYCAF) at the Pavillon Royal, a freshly renovated historical building in Paris.

During the first six months of 2018, Metrohm France received 23 submissions for the award. Among them, 17 fulfilled all the required criteria. We created an independent jury made up of two professors from the Lyon and Toulouse Universities, one industrial representative from the research and development department of the company Air Liquide, and two of our Product Managers: Dr. Tainon and Dr. Akrour. It was a difficult task to decide which of the candidates should receive the honor of winning the Metrohm Young Chemist Award France. So, let me introduce them to you:

Second Prize: Mr. Louis Godeffroy

Louis Godeffroy of the Laboratoire P.A.S.T.E.U.R chemistry department of Ecole Normale Supérieure won the 2nd prize in our Young Chemist Award. He received it for his research titled «Development of a miniaturized electrochemical device for carrying out preparative electrolyses.»

And the winner is:

Drum roll

(It’s hard to build up suspense in writing …)

(Very hard …)

First Prize: Ms. Sophia Oukala!!!!

Thanks to her thesis work on the «Development of Electrochemical Methods Using Ultramicroelectrodes to Analyze Actors Involved in the Stability of Oil Bases» at the Ecole Normale Supérieur de Chimie de Rennes, which she carried out in partnership with TOTAL Petroleum, Ms. Sophia Oukala is our winner.

Congratulations! Metrohm France hopes this award will be the first step towards further success for both of our winners.
