Improving our understanding of porous materials

Interesting materials for the energy transition

Boehmite

Uncharged Lamellar
Structures: Boehmite

Clay

Charged Lamellar
Structures: Clay

Zeolithe

Mesoporous Structures:
Zeolite

From the structure of the porous material to its transport properties and reactivity:

operando studies combining temporal and spatial scales 

Our scientific program

Supporting the development of innovation in the fields of:

  • catalysis (refining, petrochemicals, biomass conversion)
  • adsorbents (reduction of contaminants)
  • renewable energy storage

Synergy between the partners involved in the joint research laboratory (LCR)

State-of-the-art instrumentation in operando mode

Synthesis
