Pascale Subra-Paternault serves as a Senior Scientist at Chemistry Department, French National Research Center (CNRS). Paternault was born in 1960 in France. Paternault got Ph.D. degree in analytical chemistry from University of Paris 6 in 1989, and from Laboratory of Analytical Chemistry at ESPCI, Paris, France. The thesis Supervisor was M.C. Hennion and they were entitled: Extraction, separation and analysis of organic matrials contained in waters subjected to potability treatment. Paternault worked as a junior scientist at LIMHP, Villetaneuse, France, for extraction, purification, and crystallization assisted by supercritical fluids, from 1988 to 2005. From 1994 to 1995, Paternault held a One Year Scientist position for precipitation of fine solids by rapid expansion of supercritical solution at the Department of Chemical Engineering, Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, USA, with Professor P. Debenedetti. From 2006 till 2011, Paternault worked as a Senior Scientist (DR2) for developing a simulation approach of crystallization process, and extraction and purification of phospholipids by supercritical fluids at TREFLE Bordeaux, from 2006 till 2011. Since 2011, Paternault has been a Senior Scientist at CBMN Bordeaux for crystallization and formulation assisted by supercritical fluids, and recovery of valuable molecules from low value products. Paternault ‘s areas of expertise include extraction, sorption, purification by supercritical fluids, phospholipids purification and liposomes formation by supercritical CO2, crystallization and formulation assisted by CO2 including coprecipitation, surface modification, biopolymers morphology (microfibers versus powders), polymorphism, bioavailability, and phase equilibria. Paternault has been a Reviewer for international journals. Paternault has published 56 publications in international journals. Paternault has experience in European contracts with expertise of European projects and consultancies.
