Director, Electrochemistry and Spectroscopy of Materials, CNRS (France)
Prof. Jean-Pierre Pereira-Ramos has developed research activity on the synthesis of new lithium intercalation compounds by soft chemistry and electrochemical properties for almost 15 years. Prof. Pereira-Ramos has investigated the relationships between the structure, morphology, and electrochemistry of novel sol-gel transition metal oxides as positive electrodes for rechargeable Li and Li ion batteries. Prof. Pereira-Ramos is a Director of research in CNRS since 1996, and currently heads the Group of Electrochemistry and Spectroscopy of Materials at the Institute of Chemistry and Materials Paris Est (ICMPE), CNRS, Thiais, France. The areas presently studied in his group include intercalation compounds, thin film oxides for Li microbatteries, and also lithiated transition metal nitrides and silicium nanowires as negative electrodes. His main research interest is to provide a comprehensive view of the Li insertion mechanism into such electrode materials.
