ANR JCJC 2019 natural Deep Eutectic solvents foR Microalgae bIorefinery in Cosmetics (DERMIC)

The use of microalgae have focused the interest of cosmetic industry for some years now, as renewable resources of various biomolecules. Natural Deep Eutectic Solvents (NaDES) represent an exciting opportunity for microalgae eco-extraction. NaDES are considered as a new generation of green ionic liquids. Their main interest lies in their renewability and biodegradability as they are prepared by mixing vegetal cellular constituents. Their composition makes also NaDES truly biocompatible allowing to avoid solvent removal step. Numerous references described NaDES as solvent for solid/liquid extraction of plants, mostly focusing on polyphenols and flavonoids but no reference deals with microalgae extraction. This project propose a biorefinery approach using NaDES to produce several cosmetic high added-value ingredients from microalgae biomass. Cosmetic dedicated NaDES will be designed, characterized and applied to several microalgae to propose a sustainable upgrading scheme.

The post-doctoral fellow will be in charge of designing multistep biorefinery process, based on preliminary data of the project. Especially, Centrifugal Partition Chromatography process will be to refine NaDES global extracts. In silico screening of biphasic solvent system and unitary operation will be performed using thermodynamics tools as COSMO RS software. Three microalgae species, Spirulina, Porphyridium sp. and Chlorella sp. will be investigated.

This project was funded by the National Research Agency, and will take place in the EA 7502 SIMBA (Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Tours). The fellow will work in collaboration with one post-doc, 2 PhD students, one technician and a master student.

Skills / diploma
PhD in natural product chemistry or extraction process engineering or chemistry

Extraction/biorefinery skills will be mandatory, expertise in microalgae extraction will be welcomed.

COSMO RS or aspen software knowledge was highly recommended.
