  Grade: PR1


Prof. Jean Pierre Bellat (born in 1960), PhD at the University of Burgundy at Dijon (1985); Voluntary Service Overseas Teacher in Algeria (1985-1987); Post-doc at IFPEN (1987-1988); Teacher Assistant at the University of Burgundy (1988); HDR (1995); Professor since 1999. Head of ASP team since 1997. Director of IRM department of ICB since 2012. Research covers reactivity of solids and adsorption of gases in nanostructured materials: application to gas storage, detection and separation and energy storage



Ongoing projects

  • Capture of formaldehyde by adsorption (ADEME + UCCS Lille + IC2MP Poitiers )
  • Storage of tritiated water in zeolites (CEA Valduc + UFC Besançon)
  • MOF’s: adsorption and hydrothermal stability (ANR SOFTCRYSTAB, ENS Paris + ENSCP Paris + IS2M Mulhouse)
  • Hydrolysis mechanisms of LiH (CEA Valduc)
  • Isotopic separation by adsorption in zeolites (CEA Valduc)
  • Adsorption and diffusion in cork (Agrosup Dijon + professional committees of Burgundy and Champagne)
  • Gas sensors and zeolites (PRES UB Dijon - UFC Besançon)
