2021 Biomim' Expo

This year, themes developed within the framework of the Labex Bio-inspired Chemistry axis were on display, with the presentation of the models of Ni-superoxide dismutase, as well as an integrated photo-electrocatalytic module allowing the continuous production of hydrogen under irradiation, by direct dissociation of water (artificial leaf). These achievements are the result of research carried out within the Laboratory of Structure and Properties of Molecular Architectures (SYMMES) and the Laboratory of Chemistry and Biology of Metals (LCBM). They illustrate two examples of the many strategies actively explored by different Labex teams to develop more sustainable approaches to the use of natural resources and in particular through the use of solar resources. This research is inspired at several levels by the molecular mechanisms of natural photosynthesis, and aims to reproduce some of its fundamental processes in artificial constructions that can potentially be transferred in the form of technological solutions.
