From scientific research to entrepreneurship, there is only one step: SON for Synthesis Of Nanohybrids manufactures nano-objects which are materials on an infinitely small scale that reveal often totally different properties of the same materials in their “normal" state.
SON is first of all a project born in the laboratories of the University of Burgundy and notably led by Jérémy Paris, former doctoral student of Nadine Millot, professor and researcher at the laboratoire Interdisciplinaire Carnot de Bourgogne.

Specialized in the design, manufacture and functionalization of nanoparticles for different sectors, the “SON” innovation has many applications in health (magnetic resonance imaging, magnetic hyperthermia) and in the chemical industry (catalysis, pollution control). . In partnership with the Center Georges François Leclerc (CGFL), a reference center in cancerology in the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region, SON designs nanoparticles used both as a multimodal imaging agent (MRI / SPECT) and as a carrier of molecules therapies to target certain cancers. But nanoparticles are also used to develop magnetic nanocatalysts that significantly improve chemical manufacturing processes.
