Descriptif des activités de recherche

Organic electrode materials are very attractive for electrochemical energy storage devices because they can be flexible, lightweight, low cost, benign to the environment, and used in a variety of device architectures. Organic materials provide an excellent opportunity to further improve existing energy storage technologies and a versatile platform to develop novel electrochemical energy storage system. The research on organic polymer batteries evolved with the discovery of the electronic conductivity of doped conjugated polymers. The Current research is aimed to design of new oligomers, conducting polymers with redox properties and functional hybrid materials for energy storage applications. The work will be conducted under the scientific supervision and responsibility of Dr. Matthieu Becuwe.
