biographical information

Dr Lydie Valade is Senior Researcher (DR1) at CNRS-Laboratoire de Chimie de Coordination (LCC) in Toulouse. Her current research area concerns molecule-based conductive nanomaterials and their application to composite materials. She received her MS degree (1979) from Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris VI) and her Doctorate and Habilitation degrees (1983 and 1987) from Université de Toulouse III Paul Sabatier.

L. Valade began working on molecular conductors and superconductors for her doctoral research under the supervision of Dr Patrick Cassoux at LCC. She joined CNRS in 1983 continuing her work on molecular materials. Her main result during this period was the preparation of the first superconductor containing a transition metal complex: TTF[Ni(dmit)2]2. After a postdoctoral stay (1987-88) in Prof Leonard V. Interrante’s group at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI, Troy, NY), where she studied molecular precursors to ceramic materials by chemical vapor deposition (CVD), she headed a project on CVD precursors to titanium and vanadium carbides and nitrides. From 1998, she focused her research on processing of molecule-based materials as thin films, nanowires, nanoparticles and composites. She authored or co-authored 140 papers and 2 patents.

L. Valade acted as team leader (2003-2011) and as vice director of LCC (2007-2010). She has also high interest in science diffusion towards students and public. She was member of the French organizing committee for International Year of Chemistry 2011 and  elected at the administrative council of the Chemical Society of France (2014-2018). She is President of "Chimie et Société", a division of the Fondation de la Maison de la Chimie acting for scientific diffusion.
