Novel membranes based on 2D nanosheets

Chemistry Condensed matter physics, chemistry & nanosciences Soft matter and complex fluids


This thesis project aims to exfoliate new nanostructured architectures based on two-dimensional inorganic phases. These nanostructures will be designed for filtration devices and tested using our microfluidic platform. The target application is water purification and the selective separation of metal ions. The doctoral student will interact with chemists, physicists and electrochemists in a real multidisciplinary environment, on a fundamental research subject directly connected to application needs. Thus, during his thesis, the student will be exposed to a multidisciplinary environment and brought to carry out experiments in various fields such as inorganic chemistry, physical chemistry, micro / nano-fabrication and nano-characterization methods. In In this context, this project should potentially lead to significant societal benefits.

For the realization of the latter, he will have access to a very wide and varied range of equipment ranging from optical microscopes to the latest generation synchrotron (ESRF), including field effect or electron microscopes and galvanostats.

This thesis is therefore an excellent opportunity for professional growth, both in terms of your knowledge and your skills.
