The cluster develops its research activities in the fields of energy and environment:

  • Electrochemistry and Membranes
    1. Physico-chemical studies of electrode materials, membranes and interfaces for electrocatalysis
    2. Physico-chemical studies of ions and solvent transfer in ionic membrane systems: interaction structure-properties (surface properties, interfacial phenomena, modelling)
    3. Coupling between vibrational spectroscopy(in situ ATR-IRTF, operando Raman) and electrochemical methods to study the water transport through the membranes in continuous operation in fuel cells
    4. Interaction between advanced electrochemical oxidative process «ElectroFenton » and baromembrane filtration (MF/UF/NF)
  • Applications
    1. Enzymatic and hybrid biofuel cells / macro and microfluidic devices
    2. Power generators for portable electronics, Electrolysers, Fuel cells
    3. Water purification and desalination
    4. Treatment of industrial wastes
