COORDINATED ACTIVITY ON PILLARED LAYERED STRUCTURES

Objective


Pillared layered structures (PLS) are nanocomposite materials prepared by linking molecules or colloids to a layered host. They exhibit a remarkably broad spectrum of structural, chemical, electronic, ionic, optical and magnetic properties, and provide supermesh host structures in which chemical reactions or physical processes can proceed under gas phase conditions, but at liquid/solid state densities. They can be shaped as powders, pellets, supported or self standing films, and can be dispersed in solid or liquid matrices.

Due to the equally broad spectrum of potential applications, including heterogeneous and homogeneous catalysis, separation technology, environmental applications, sensors, research on PLS is definitely precompetitive.

The coordinated European activity on pillared layered structures (CEA-PLS) provides a forum for information exchange and cooperation in the field of PLS. In its present state, the CEA-PLS links 23 university of governmental groups and 10 industrial groups, from 7 European countries.
