  • After master studies at INSA Rouen, Dr. Denis Frath obtained a PhD supported by a MENRT fellowship from the University of Strasbourg in 2013. His doctoral work was focused on the light driven production of hydrogen and on the synthesis of novel fluorescent dyes. Then he worked on STM analyses of photoresponsive self-assembled monolayers as a JSPS fellow at Kyoto University from Sept. 2013 to Dec. 2015. He was involved in activities on redox-active molecular layers for electronic devices at Paris Diderot University from Jan. 2016 to Dec. 2017 and on binuclear phthalocyanine metallic complexes for catalytic reactions at CNRS in Lyon from Feb. to Sept. 2018. He was appointed as CNRS Associate Resesearcher in Oct. 2018. His current research interests at the Chemistry Laboratory of ENS Lyon are directed towards π-conjugated molecules with optical and electrochemical properties, their supramolecular self-assembly and functional materials with switchable properties (gels, liquid crystals, surfaces…).
