Alain Penicaud

Université de Bordeaux - CNRS

Alain Pénicaud is a carbon specialist that specializes in dissolving insoluble forms of carbon. He showed in 2005 that true solutions of carbon nanotubes could be obtained by dissolving alkali metal salts of nanotubes. His team later applied that to graphite to obtain graphene solutions in 2007. Recently, his team showed that single layer graphene and individualized nanotubes could be stabilized in water without surfactants or sonication, by hydroxide adsorption, leading to the creation of the company Carbon Waters in 2017, employing now 8 people in Pessac, near Bordeaux. A. Penicaud's team has also showed that performing graphene-based electrocatalysts, supercapacitors and conducting inks and rubbers could be obtained from food waste.
