Multiscale Modeling and Molecular Interfaces

Research group M3I - Multiscale Modeling and Molecular Interfaces

Leader: Florent Goujon

Research Topics

The main expertise of the group is modelling interfacial systems: water-acid gas, water-oil, polymers at interfaces and, recently, functionalized surfaces. The methods developped make use of descriptions at both the molecular and mesoscopic levels, and allow the study of phenomena over the appropriate time and space scales. The group has developped original methods to describe polyelectrolytes at interfaces and to calculate the interfacial tension of binary systems at high pressure. Dissipative particle dynamics (DPD) is used to model friction of polymer brushes.
