 Team: Adsorption on Porous Solids


Igor Bezverkhyy, PhD in Chemistry (Lomonosov Moscow State University, 1998); postdoctoral stays at Institut de Recherches sur la Catalyse et Environnement de Lyon (1999 - 2001 et 2002 - 2004) and at Institut des Matériaux Jean Rouxel de Nantes (2001 – 2002). From 2004 CNRS research scientist in Laboratoire Interdisciplinaire Carnot de Bourgogne, ICB UMR 6303 CNRS/uB. Main research fields: synthesis and characterisation of catalysts and adsorbents, determination of the mechanismes of adsorption and gas-solid reactions.


Current projects

  •  Mechanical and hydrothermal stability of flexible porous solids (project ANR blanc 2010 – 2014, coordinator A. Boutin, ENS Paris).
  • Coupling between adsorption and catalysis for the treatment of emissions of formaldehyde and toluene at low concentrations (program ADEME – CORTEA 2012 – 2014, coordinator J.-F. Lamonier, Université Lille 1).
  •  Separation of hydrogen isotopes on adsorbents (research contract with CEA Valduc, 2013 – 2015).
  • Porous silicon carbide as a support for cobalt metal nanoparticles in Fischer-Tropsch synthesis (program FP7 Marie Curie IRSES 2012 - 2014, coordiantor Norbert Kruse, Université Libre de Bruxelles).
  •  Synthesis, characterization and catalytic properties of hybrid materials based on nanostructured metal oxides (ZnO and TiO2) decorated with noble metal nanoparticles (PhD thesis of Maciej Kwiatkowski in collaboration with M. Skompska, University of Warsaw, 2013 – 2016).
  •  Developement of new hybride nanovectors based on mesoporous silica and study of their interaction with molecules showing anticancer activity (PhD thesis of Florent Crevat in collaboration with MANAPI team, 2013 – 2016) .

Recent projects

  •  Synthesis and characterization of nanocomposites Pd ou Cu/polypyrrole and polyporphine films (collaboration with M. Vorotyntsev, Institut de Chimie Moléculaire de l'Université de Bourgogne, 2007 – 2013).
  • Synthesis and characterization of hybride materials nanorodes CdS/polymere for photovoltaique applications (project POLONIUM 2011-2012, collaboration with M. SKOMPSKA, Departement of Chemistry, University of Warsaw).
  • New nanostructured oxides for desulfurisation : kinetics and interaction mechanism with hydrogen sulfide and thiphene (PhD thesis of J. Skrzypski, 2007 – 2011).
  • Studies of reactions of thiophene and H2S with nanoparticles of metals and/or oxides by means of XRD et EXAFS in situ (collaboration with O. Safonova, Swiss – Norwegian Beamline ESRF, 2008 – 2010).
  • Developpement of new porous zeolitic materials for purification of an optical cavity (research contrat with SAGEM Défense Sécurité, 2008 – 2010).
  • Study of the adsorption of sulfur species and hydrocarbons on zeolites and alumina (research contract with AXENS, 2009 – 2010).
