Description of the thesis topic
The growth process of low silica and low alumina containing nanosized zeolites from colloidal suspensions will be explored with and without organic structural directing agents. The broad technical objective of the program is to elaborate a versatile strategy to analyze the nanozeolites with advanced methods behind the classical approaches for characterization. The in-situ experimental analyses will be complemented by theoretical study using the precise multiscale modelling of interfacial phenomena occurring at gas-solid and liquid-solid interfaces.
Strategic development of nanomaterials exploring new routes: green synthesis of nanomaterials with on-demand properties.
The PhD will be in charge of the development of novel methodology for synthesis of nanosized small pore zeolites. A particular attention will be paid on the new properties related with the versatility in chemical compositions, framework structures and extra framework cations. The adsorption and separation of CO2 and O2 will be controlled by “cage entry” and “guard cations” located in the secondary building units of zeolites.
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 of porous materials and spectroscopy. The selected candidate will be attached to UMR6506.
