Objectives of our laboratory

The main objective of our laboratory is the control, optimization and design of physical and chemical transformation processes of matter through:

  • Improvement of catalytic and photocatalytic activity by reducing the size of particles of metal oxides and semiconductors (nanoparticles);
  • Decreasing the cost of the photocatalytic process by eliminating the microfiltration step by immobilizing the semiconductors on a support;
  • Promotion of the use of bentonite as a catalyst, catalytic and photocatalytic support and as an adsorbent;
  • The study and implementation of thermal appliances (refrigerator, heat pumps, etc.) adsorption, energy independent, and absorption;
  • The implementation of nanomaterials based on natural products: extraction, functionalization, characterization and application in the pharmaceutical, phytosanitary and environmental protection fields;
  • Development and implementation of electrochemical reactors for water treatment, electrosynthesis, electrogeneration of chemical species and study of protection systems against corrosion.

His areas of expertise in particular are:

  • the engineering of separation and transfer operations in the chemical, petrochemical and pharmaceutical industry
  • catalytic and photocatalytic reaction engineering, – water treatment and reuse processes
  • pharmaceutical processes, – electrochemical processes in the chemical industry.
