    Organosulfate Formation through the Heterogeneous Reaction of Sulfur Dioxide with Unsaturated Fatty Acids and Long-Chain Alkenes

    Collaboration between Chinese, Canadian and French laboratories recently demonstrated that sulfur dioxide reacts with a range of fatty acids and long-chain alkenes to lead to the formation of organosulfur products. This reaction, which even takes place in the presence of ozone, is enhanced by light irradiation. The reaction products have the same composition as some organosulfur compounds that have been detected in atmospheric aerosols.

  • David Farrusseng wins the 2016 International Catalysis Award.

    David Farrusseng, from France, is the recipient of the 2016 International Catalysis Award, for his contribution in the field of catalysis.

    His research activities deal with the design of materials for catalytic & separation processes. He has developed novel methodologies for the rational design of catalytic site based on kinetic and statistic descriptors. He has also pioneered the design and application of MOFs to acid/base catalysis. Lately, he has developed breakthrough concepts in the synthesis of stable bimetallic nanoparticles of controlled size and composition which exhibit outstanding catalytic selectivity. He is author of more than 130 peer- review papers and 17 patents, one being commercially exploited. More info on his own page .

  • Zoe Buniazet obtient un prix young scientist à l'ICC16

    Zoé Buniazet, actuellement doctorante de l'équipe ECI2D de l'IRCELYON et en catalyse et séparation à l'IFPEN Solaize, a reçu un prix de Jeune scientifique lors du 16th International Congress on Catalysis (ICC 16) qui s’est tenu du 3 au 8 juillet en Chine. Ce prix lui a été accordé pour la qualité des travaux présentés lors de ce congrès. Cette présentation aborde une partie de ses travaux de thèse concernant le développement d’une méthodologie de caractérisation de sites catalytiques en présence d’eau pour la réaction de déshydratation des bio-alcools, voie alternative pour la production d’oléfines non fossiles. Zoé Buniazet est une doctorante dirigée par Stéphane Loridant (ECI2D/IRCELYON) et co-encadrée par Sylvie Maury et Amandine Cabiac (IFPEN Solaize).

  • IRCELYON partner of the H2020 NMBP program “PRODIA”

    PROduction, control and Demonstration of structured hybrid nanoporous materials for Industrial adsorption Applications

    ProDIA  aims to accelerate the industrialisation  of hybrid nanoporous materials in Europe. This collaborative programm will focus on the development of reliable  production methods of nanoporous powders including activation and shaping processes. Main objectives are :

    • To develop production technologies and methods, including shaping, for MOFs and aluminosilicates, which are price competitive (10-100 €/kg).
    • To set-up production facilities in Europe for the production of a variety of NPMs with chemical and mechanical stabilities and with safety requirements which allow them to be sold, distributed and used in the industry.
    • To demonstrate the industrial relevance of NPMs in gas storage, air purification, heat pumps and health care applications.

  • µ-Nitrido diiron... complexes: remarkable catalysts for several challenging reactions

    Review of P. Afanasiev and A. B. Sorokin published in Accounts of Chemical Research


    New approach in catalysis is proposed in IRCELYON. µ-Nitrido diiron phthalocyanine and porphyrin complexes are remarkable catalysts for several challenging reactions. These bio-inspired complexes feature particular structural, electronic and especially catalytic properties. They can be used for the oxidation of methane, ethane and benzene, as well as for the C-C bond forming and oxidative dehalogenation of C-Cl and C-F bonds. Mechanistic background of this approach and unusual catalytic properties of µ-nitrido diiron species are described in the recent review. Due to accessibility and structural flexibility of their structure in terms of ligands, metals and bridging group, these complexes have a great potential for further development at fundamental and industrial level.
