There, he launched, with his wife, Prof. Françoise Rouquerol, a research group on the thermal transformation and adsorptive properties of powders and porous solids, with special emphasis on new techniques of thermal analysis (like Controlled Rate Thermal Analysis) and microcalorimetry. He was head of the CNRS Thermodynamics and Microcalorimetry Center in Marseille (1990-2001)and he is now "Directeur de Recherche" Emérite in the "MADIREL" laboratory (Divided Materials, Coatings and Electroceramics), shared between CNRS and Aix Marseille University. He chaired the IUPAC Commission on Colloid and Surface Chemistry (1991-1994) and the IUPAC Sub-Committee on the Characterization of Porous Solids (1985-1994).
