Two-dimensional (2D) materials have attracted much attention due to their unique properties. Controllable synthesis of 2D materials with high quality and high efficiency is essential for their large-scale applications. In parallel to the chemical synthesis route, chemical vapor deposition (CVD) has been one of the most important techniques for the synthesis of 2D materials. For the present talk I will briefly overview our most recent work on 2D materilas growth and synthesis (graphene, graphene oxide, boron nitride, core-shell nanoparticles@graphene, transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) like MoSe2 and WSe2). In parallel, we will discuss how the resulting electroactive nanomaterials could be used as electrodes for sensing and hydrogen evolution reaction applications.
Biographie du Pr. Mohamed Siaj :
Prof. Mohamed Siaj received his PhD from Université Laval (Canada) under the guidance of Prof. Peter McBreen. Following postdoctoral training at the Colin Nuckolls group at Columbia University, New York, a leading institution in 2D Materials based science, Siaj joined the Department of Chemistry at UQAM as an Assistant Professor in 2008, and since 2018 he becomes a Full Professor. Since 2016, Prof. Siaj is a Canada Research Chair in 2D-materials for sensing applications (https://fenlab.uqam.ca). At present, Prof. Siaj is the director of NanoQÀM center for nanomaterials and energy (http://nanoqam.ca/wp/en/). He is adjunct director of Quebec Centre for Advanced Materials (QCAM). QCAM is an interuniversity strategic group working in the field of functional materials for biomedical, environmental and energy applications supported by fundamental research axes in the topics of self-assembly, nanotechnology and polymers (http://cqmf-qcam.ca/?lang=en). He is acting as president of Analysis of Materials and Microsystems Regrouping (RAMM), Faculty of Science, UQAM. Prof. Siaj has extensive experience in different areas of surface science and nanomaterials-based 2D Materials. Siaj’s group activities focus on the growth, synthesis, processing and characterization of advanced nanostructured electroactive materials for chemical and their integration into sensors and as electrodes for water splitting. Based on a range of disciplines across Canadian universities, Siaj’s group demonstrates a sustained quality of published output on 2D materials and the ability to develop an international network and involvement in high-level activities across the globe.
