Our application to the USP-COFECUB program for a collaboration project with prof. Mauro Ribeiro of U São Paulo was successful!
The main participants are prof. Margarida Costa Gomes and myself from France, and profs. Rômulo Ando and Mauro Ribeiro of the Institute of Chemistry from Brazil.
Our project CLINT, on the Interactions of Ionic Liquids with Carbon Nanomaterials, was selected to illustrated the activity of the Agence Nationale de la Recherche in its 2016 Report (check page 48).
I am honoured to be the laureate of the Senior Researcher Award (Prix Chercheur Confirmé) 2017 of the Division of Physical Chemistry, a joint division of the Société Chimique de France and of the Société Française de Physique.
An announcement of the Award appeared in the Oct-Nov 2017 issue of l’Actualité Chimique (p. 140). I delivered a lecture at the Journée Scientifique de la Division de Chimie Physique, Paris, 30 Nov 2017.
Our work with the Blankschtein group of MIT on the interactions of liquids with nanomaterials made the cover of the J. Phys. Chem. C.
