ANR 2016 - HYBRIDIAMS - Nouveaux hybrides diamantoides-metal : synthèse et applications catalytiques

The HYBRIDIAMS “Hybrid Diamond-Metal Structures from Diamondoids: Synthesis and Catalytic“ project aims at exploring the reactivity and exploiting the properties of molecular organic, thermodynamically extremely stable and highly regular, nm-sized carbon cages named diamondoids This project based on a combined experimental and theoretical approach aims at designing novel hybrid structures for which unobserved physical and catalytic properties are expected. This project concerns the development of the potential of diamondoids as building blocks for nanoscience and catalysis using approaches with several already obtained innovative proofs-of-concepts.
