PHENIX

 
PHENIX (Physical chemistry of Electrolytes and Interfacial Nanosystems) is a joint research unit of CNRS and Sorbonne University (UMR8234), gathering 50 permanent staff (CNRS researchers, professors and associated professors and technicians) and about 40 non-permanent people (PhD, Post-Doc, Invited professors).

The research activity of PHENIX is centered on the physical chemistry of electrolytes and multi-scale interfacial materials such as colloidal systems and porous materials. One of its main characteristics is the strong coupling between experiences, numerical simulations and modeling.

The structuring themes of the UMR are:

  • Inorganic Colloids (CIN)
  • Electrochemistry and Ionic Liquids (ELI)
  • Modeling and multi-scale experiments (MEM)
  • Study of multi-scale transport by low-field NMR (transverse axis)
  • 3D X-ray imaging of environmental materials and colloidal systems (transverse axis)
