Interfacial Catalysis

Interfacial catalysis allows reactions at the interface of two immiscible reactants.

This opens the door to greener processes where no solvent is used. 

Our objective is to imagine new breakthrough catalytic systems capable of promoting reactions efficiently without the use of solvent and with the ability of recycling the catalysts. One of our approach is to design Pickering Interfacial Catalysts allowing to provide high activity and selectivity between immiscible reagents.
