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:
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
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.
