Research Interests

Dr. Pellenq's research interests focus on the thermodynamics and dynamic properties of molecular, ionic and covalent fluids confined in porous materials (zeolites, microporous carbons, mesoporous oxide materials, clay, cement, and others). Using atomistic simulation techniques, he integrates adsorption intermolecular potentials to describe a material's texture at the nano level.
