Research carried out at the Surface Reactivity Laboratory


Research carried out at the Surface Reactivity Laboratory The research carried out at the Surface Reactivity Laboratory aims at developing and controlling the surface of inorganic materials (such as metal oxide for example) for applications in the field of heterogeneous catalysis (depollution, "green" processes, valorisation of biological molecules). sourced or pollutants) and biointerfaces (biosensors, anti-biofilm surfaces, biopile, prebiotic chemistry). The research approach common to the various projects generally requires the development or functionalization, controlled at the molecular scale of inorganic solids, the characterization of materials (in particular their surface) and the study of their reactivity. Researchers therefore have very complementary skills such as organic or organometallic chemistry, biochemistry, inorganic chemistry and materials, as well as in the field of advanced physicochemical characterization techniques. If the manipulated objects and valuation objectives are different, the scientific cohesion is strong around common problems such as the structuration / functionalization of flat or divided surfaces and the advanced characterization of these surfaces and their reactivity. We have therefore adopted a unifying scientific structuring, favoring scientific exchanges and synergies, around three themes that constitute our main lines and affect both the field of catalysis and that of biointerfaces.



  • Synthesis of porosity materials, controlled acid-base properties and nano-structuration     
  • Functionalization and characterization of surfaces     
  • Catalytic reaction networks models     
  • Characterization operando / resolved in time of the reaction sites     
  • Reaction mechanisms     
  • Follow-up of interactions in biological environment
