Laboratory of Polymer Chemistry

The Laboratory of Polymer Chemistry has a permanent staff of 3 persons (Prof Yves Geerts, Ms Adrienne Remacle  Ms Françoise Van Eycken and Ms Anne Laurent) and is composed of 8 postdocs and 3 Ph.D students. Research topics involve organics semiconductors and discotic liquid crystals.

Chemistry of Surfaces, Interfaces and Nanomaterials

The research activities cover various aspects of surface and interfacial chemistry since they focus on the modification, characterization and reactivity of surfaces. These studies carried out at the solid-liquid interface and solis-gas interface deal with the modification of surfaces (metals, metal electroldes and polymers) by chemical or electrochemical reactiond, by self-assembling as well as by plasma techniques. Thin layers,organized monolayers and nanostructured surfaces are designed. The characterization is based on electrochemical, spectroscopic techniques as well as on microscopy and contact angle measurements.The surface properties are examined for electrocatalysis, electrodialysis, biocompatibility, the design of barrier layers and smart materials.
