Sol-gel Chemistry and Technology to Design Nanostructured Materials: From Heterogeneous Catalysts to Microbattery Components by Way of Photoactive Materials and Functionalized Coatings


Professor Benoît HEINRICHS

Nanomaterials, Catalysis & Electrochemistry – NCE Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Liège, Belgium


The NCE laboratory at the University of Liège is active in the development of nanostructured materials for various applications such as catalysis, electrochemistry and functionalized coatings. The specificity of NCE’s research lies in their transversality, through which materials science and chemical engineering are approached in an integrated way.

The goal of this presentation is to describe the underlying general concepts that led over the years to nanostructured materials used in fields as diverse as dechlorination processes, water and air purification, microbatteries components, photoactive powders and coatings.
