Core competencies

In close collaboration with the microscopy facility CATµ ( Center for Applied Technology in Microscopy), GREENMAT research unit has progressively focused towards inorganic materials with applications in the field of energy conversion and storage, catalysis and photocatalysis and electrochromism.
Speaking about synthesis, most of the processes that are developed in the GREENMAT research unit are low-energy routes (“soft chemistry” like sol-gel, templating, nanolithography,...), and shaping control often deals with thin films deposition and controlled porosity, in a combined attempt to reduce active matter and enhance interfacial surface.
Thanks to previous experience in electroceramics, nanostructured catalysts, and (photo)catalysis, GREENMAT was able to step in research projects related to solar energy capture and associated electrons transfer, electrochemical conversion and storage of energy, and catalytic treatment of effluents. Indeed, we possess strong expertise in the design of synthesis routes that allow a precise control on the product microstructure ( as bulk, powder or thin film) and therefore aim at a better light harvesting and improved charge transport mechanisms and a higher fluid-solid interaction.
