Presentation E-POM group

The E-POM group claims a strong expertise in molecular inorganic chemistry, in the synthesis of polymetallic coordination complexes including polyoxometalates (nano-scaled molecular oxides or POMs) and polycyanometalates, up to mesoscopic assemblies.

We are thus able to provide tailor-made advanced architectures or functionalized building blocks to address several societal issues related to: 

  • environmental challenges: development of improved catalysts for sustainable chemistry, CO2 reduction, sensors 
  • alternative energies: water photodissociation, organic photovoltaics 
  • information technologies: switchable molecules for information processing and data storage. 
  • health: POMs amyloid peptide interactions.

The molecular structures and the electronic, optical and/or magnetic properties of the inorganic platforms we are handling are investigated by many characterization techniques, especially multi-nuclear NMR, electrochemistry, absorption spectroscopies, X-ray diffraction, EPR, SQUID, PPMS, scanning probe microscopies.

Using the tools of molecular inorganic chemistry and supramolecular chemistry, we are exploring the bottom-up approach to (multi)-functional materials for catalysis and molecular nanosciences.

Expertise fields:
coordination chemistry, supramolecular chemistry, surface chemistry, catalysis
heteropolymetallic complexes, polycyanometalates, polyoxometalates, organic-inorganic hybrids, dendrimers, self-assembled architectures, thin films, spin reservoirs, electron reservoirs
