Sustainable Chemistry: from fundamental to applications

The team C Durable brings complementary expertise in various fields of catalysis (metallic, acido-basic, organometallic), and in nanomaterial engineering.
The driving line of the research activities is the conception of materials for controlled properties for catalysis and optical applications.
Concerning catalysis, the main topic is to explore new transformations of bioresources; and low reactive substrates.
Concerning optical applications, the main objective is to design new materials of original properties for example in the fields of luminescence and photocatalysis.
