Our research is at the crossroad of chemistry, nanosciences, Earth, energy and environment sciences. We are developing methods to design and to study original nano-objects, as ways to address some of the urgent challenges of our societies: energy and environment.
We are seaking to understand how materials form in Nature, and how to use these processes as inspiration to develop new methods of nanomaterials synthesis, in order to:
- address the concepts underlying the formation, the reactivity and the properties of original nano-objects belonging to new territories in terms of chemical composition and atomic-scale order,
- target specific properties and functions,
- enhance sustainability of synthetic processes.
Our activities are performed in the Laboratory of Condensed Matter Chemistry of Paris (LCMCP), affiliated to CNRS and Sorbonne University. It is located in the center of Paris on the campus of Sorbonne University.
