Solvent reorganization around carbon nanomaterials

Solvation of nanoparticles may affect dramatically the nanoparticles properties, but also the water hydrogen bond network around the nanoparticles. We are interested in probing water molecules around naoparticles, in particular nanodiamonds. For this purpose, we use both X-ray absorption and FTIR spectroscopies.

Spectro NDs

Various excitation light sources can provide complementary information on water hydrogen bond network.
