Hi !

My name is Thomas Galeandro-Diamant.

I am a chemist. I work at Solvay as a research scientist in the beautiful city of Lyon (France).

I'll be happy to talk to you on Twitter, Linkedin or Viadeo.

12 grams of carbon

12gramsofcarbon.com is a website that I created in 2012. It explains some subjects of chemistry with short and synthetic articles.

If you have some feedback about it, I will be happy to hear from you.

My PhD

During my PhD, which I defended in December 2016, I was interested in nanostructured catalysts for alkene hydrosilylation, a reaction used a lot in the silicone industry.

My research has led to two publications:

  1. Platinum nanoparticles in suspension are as efficient as Karstedt's complex for alkene hydrosilylation
    Galeandro-Diamant, T.; Zanota, M.-L.; Sayah, R.; Veyre, L.; Nikitine, C.; de Bellefon, C.; Marrot, S.; Meille, V. and Thieuleux, C. Chem. Comm. 2015, 51, 16194-16196
  2. Pt nanoparticles immobilized in mesostructured silica: a non-leaching catalyst for 1-octene hydrosilylation
    Galeandro-Diamant, T.; Sayah, R.; Zanota, M.-L.; Marrot, S.; Veyre, L.; Thieuleux, C. and Meille, V. Chem. Comm. 2017, 53, 2962-2965

Three patents are also being written on my PhD work.
