Molecules on metals


Aim : formulate new polymers on surfaces


To achieve this goal, we use metallic surfaces by using catalytic properties of copper surfaces.

For this purpose, we develop molecules ended with halogen atoms to consider Ullmann couplings or possessing carbon-carbon triple bonds to consider photopolymerizations.


Organic molecules network forming organometallic polymers wires on a Cu(111) surface


In July, 2015, we obtained a financing of ANR to develop new types of 2D polymers. This project named ORGANISO and led by F. Chérioux is made up of a consortium combining skills of Institut Néel and IPCMS. Additional details are available on the prject website

The study of polymerization on metal comes within the framework of ORGANISO project.
