Cédric va apporter au LCM ses compétences en catalyses électrochimiques.

The activation of small molecules, such as H2, O2, H2O or CO2, is at the forefront of modern energy challenges. Electrical energy can trigger such reactions, and has been long investigated by the use of electrocatalysts or molecular catalysis.

We are involved in different projects related to this topic, including the recent study of organic catalysts for the reduction of CO2 into methanol or carbon monoxide,[1] or the use of nanomaterials based on transition metal chalocogenides for water splitting.[2],[3]
