ISOF Institute

Applying Molecular Science and Sustainable Manufacturing

The convergence of advanced sciences and technologies

The Institute of Organic Synthesis and Photoreactivity (ISOF) is a strategic institute in the Chemical Sciences and Materials Technologies (CSMT) Department of CNR. Chemistry is the building block of nanosciences and advanced sciences and technologies convergence - ISOF plays a major role in this field. ISOF aims to develop and apply molecular science and sustainable chemical manufacturing towards the EU's energy and climate objectives at local level, whilst also improving quality of life and local economies. The institute is focused on the target of ensuring a secure supply, and achieving efficient and sustainable management and use of non-energy materials along the entire value chain in Europe.
