We are a part of the Chemistry Department at Université du Québec à Montréal at the heart of the beautiful and lively Montreal. Research in our group focuses on the design and synthesis of new organic and inorganic macromolecules (namely polymers and dendrimers) of varying architectures and functions as well as the fabrication of soft- and metallic nanomaterials for applications in nanomedicine and in optoelectronics. More details on the projects can be found in the Research page.
The multidisciplinary nature of our research provides the students with a unique opportunity to receive extensive hands-on training in organic, inorganic, macromolecule, and nanomaterial synthesis, purification, and characterization as well as to closely collaborate with experts in other fields to investigate the applications of our materials. The group members are trained in handling air- and moisture-sensitive compounds using glovebox and schelenk line techniques. They also receive training to independently acquire and analyze data using methods such as NMR, UV-vis, SEC, DSC, TGA, and DLS as well as more specialized microscopy techniques such as TEM, SEM, AFM, and CLSM.
August 2020 – Our group website is finally up!
