Area(s) of Research

Developpement in Polymer Analysis
Polyolefins microstruture characterization (size exclusion chromatography, crystallization analysis fractionation, temperature rising elution fractionation, DSC, NMR, spectroscopy (IR, Raman))


Master's degree of Analytical Sciences - Universite Claude Bernard, Lyon 1 (1997)
Bachelors degree of Physical Chemistry - Universite Claude Bernard, Lyon 1 (1995)

Research Interests

Size Exclusion Chromatography :
Hight temperature system designed for polyolefins characterization
THF or toluen system tetradetector (refractometer, UV, viscosimeter and light scattering detector)
DMF semi micro SEC (ECOSEC system with refractometer, UV and light scattering detector)
Thermal Analysis :
DSC - Differential Scanning Calorimetry
TGA - Thermogravimetric Analysis
Vibrational spectroscopy :
FTIR - transmission, ATR (Attenuated Total Reflection)
NIR - near infrared
FIR - far infrared
UV-Visible spectrophotometric analysis
Chemical composition distribution (polyolefines)
CRYSTAF - Crystallisation Analysis Fractionation
TREF - Temperature Rising Elution Fractionation
Static and dynamic Light Scattering
Dynamic Light Scattering - Zetasizer NanoZS (particle size and zeta potential)
Multiangle light scattering (MALS)
Laser light diffraction
Gas Chromatography

Current Projects

Polyolefins characterization
Developpement of new methods for measuring the microstructure of polyolefins : molar mass distribution (MMD) and chemical composition distribution (CCD)
- long chain branching determination using viscosimeter detector

- short chain branching determination using CRYSTAF, TREF, DSC and DSC-SIST

The combination of TGA with a FTIR allows the online investigation of gaseous products formed during the degradation of the sample
