II. Activités de recherche
Sophisticated polymeric materials & biobased additives and polymers as environmental alternative
Chemical tuning of synthetic polymers like polyoxazolines (POx) or biobased polymers to elaborate nanoobjects, hierarchical structures and custom material
His current research includes the synthesis and the characterization of polymers especially the promising family of polyoxazolines and biobased polymers.
He also works on biobased additives for polymers (plasticizers, surfactants, rheological agents…) to replace controversial petrosourced additives.
More recently he investigated industrial applications of polyoxazolines in biomedical field for the building of intervertebral device, nanovectors for PDT, encapsulation of antioxidants or in energy with electrolytes for Li-ion battery.
