This project aims at developing novel photoactive metal-organic framework (MOF) thin films for solar energy conversion. The main objectives are to i) achieve long-lived charge separated states, and ii) ultimately produce solar fuels, such as hydrogen, or reduce carbon dioxide, by combining these redox potentials with suitable electrocatalysts. In-depth photophysical investigation will provide a better fundamental understanding of the energy and electron transfer dynamics at play within these hierarchical hybrid materials.

The candidate will be in charge of:
- synthesizing organic dyes and coordination complexes which will be used as building blocks for the fabrication of photoactive MOFs and surface-anchored MOFs (SurMOFs).
- carrying out optical and electrochemical characterizations .
- immobilizing photoactive MOFs on surfaces of conductors (ITO) or semi-conductors (TiO2)
- investigating photophysical properties and carrying out photocatalytic experiments on these complex architectures.
- summarizing results for publication and participation in conferences.
The successful candidate will:
- hold a PhD in chemistry
- have a strong background in organic and physical chemistry. Experience in aromatic synthesis and/or photocatalysis is recommended.
- be expected to be enthusiastic about pluridisciplinary work, autonomous and a team player.
- have excellent writting and oral communication skills.
Candidates should provide a detailed CV and motivation letter (1 page)
The CEISAM laboratory is a mixed CNRS-Nantes University organization with researchers working in different chemistry areas spanning from organic and coordination chemistry to physical-chemistry. There are a large number and diversity of research projects currently being developed with funds from research agencies and industry. The building is very recent and was designed to provide a flexible and interactive research environment capable of supporting the widest possible range of research. It provides excellent facilities for research including extensive NMR and Mass Spectrometry services, TEM, SEM, UV-vis and FTIR spectrometers.
