Wet Chemistry & Surface Functionalization

This research addresses two objectives:
  1. to explore different soft chemistry synthesis methods in liquid solution and to study/optimize reaction mechanisms in solution;
  2. to attach species formed in solution on various supports (silicon, glasses, stainless steels, metals, polymers, textiles…) and to prospect/exploit derived surface functionalities.
Most promising results arise from the association of the prospected synthesis methods, which opens the route to a large range of studied functionalities. Recent projects and PhD theses address, for instance, self-cleaning and/or tailored wettability surfaces, antibacterial textiles, sub-micrometric diffraction gratings, SERS sensors, or functional nanowire architectures.
