logo-cv2.jpgSophie Fourmentin was born in Bar/S/Aube (France) in 1968. She received her pH.D. degree in organic chemistry from the University of Lille in 1994. In 1996, she became Assistant Professor at the University of Littoral-Côte d’Opale in Dunkerque. She developed a new subject area based on “Applications of cyclodextrins in the remediation of organic pollutants”.

In 2006, she completed her HDR (authorisation to supervise research activities) entitled “Complexes Cyclodextrine/Polluants Organiques: Caractérisation, Application à la remédiation des Composés Organiques Volatils”. In 2008 she was promotes Professor, and she managed the Laboratoire de Synthèse Organique et Environnement until 2010. Since January 2010 she supervises the Supramoleular team.

Her research works are at the interface between host-guest chemistry and environmental chemistry. The aim is to take benefit of the properties of cyclodextrins to enhance conventional remediation processes (VOC absorption, Fenton oxidation). The experience in the characterization of host/guest complexes in the case of complex VOC has been extended to the study of the encapsulation of flavors and essential oils, for applications in food, fragrance or pharmaceutical industry.
