Synthesis and development of new methodology for characterization of nanoporous material (zeolites and zeotypes) with spectroscopic techniques. Evaluation of the zeolites and nanoporous materials in CO2 separation, cycling, gas capture and target gas delivery (biomedicine).
The Post Doc will be in charge of the development of novel methodology toward understanding the transition from random to long- range crystalline order of porous materials. A particular attention will be paid on the new structures and scale up of the synthesis. The formation of the very first secondary building units, followed by the formation of cages and/or channels, their interconnection, crystal surfaces and terminations will be studied. The bulk and surface properties of nanozeolites related to the diffusion in small pores and cages will be thoroughly investigated. In-situ NMR spectroscopic characterization will be performed under real synthesis conditions. The unique facilities in my laboratory provide all the necessary analytical methods for characterization of nanosized zeolites (in-situ IR, NMR, Raman, DLS, XRD).
- An experience in characterization of inorganic materials will be highly appreciated (IR, XRD, TEM, SEM, TG)
-Must have a doctorate in chemistry, chemical engineering or material science.
- A relevant experience in materials chemistry is mandatory.
- Efficient in oral and written communications.
- Mastery of oral and written English is mandatory.
The project will take place within the framework of the Center for zeolites and nanoporous materials, Label d'excellence - CNRS managed by Dr. Svetlana Mintova ( Director of Recherche, CNRS, LCS UMR 6506, Caen). The work will be carried out at LCS - Laboratoire Catalyse & Spectrochimie (https://www.lcs.ensicaen.fr) located in Caen (Normandy).
The LCS has built its reputation on the preparation of zeolites and related porous materials, operando spectroscopy and catalysis. Combining very strong poles in synthesis, infrared spectroscopy, but also in NMR and Raman spectroscopy, LCS occupies a unique place to perform competitive research of the highest level in the field of porous nanomaterials. The selected candidate will be attached to UMR6506.
