Research scientist at CNRS (CR2, section 15) from October 2013. Martin DROBEK obtained his Ing. (MSc.) degree in 2004 at the Institute of Chemical Technology Prague (Czech Republic) graduating in the field of stereoselective hydrogenations on chiral complexes applied in homogeneous phase or heterogenized on various inorganic matrixes. In 2008 he was awarded a doctorate degree in Chemistry and Chemical Technology with the work focused on the synthesis and applications of phthalocyanine molecules in photocatalytical or non-photocatalytical decomposition (ICT-Prague and Research Centre of Organic Syntheses-Pardubice, Czech Republic). At the same time he also studied the structural and functional characterization of advanced films based on either TiO2 nanoparticles or phthalocyanine molecules (Research Centre of Nanosurface Engineering, Czech Republic). After his Ph.D. studies Dr. Martin DROBEK obtained a post-doctoral position at the Institut Européen des Membranes (IEM-Montpellier) for working on various subjects in the field of membrane science including ceramic membrane synthesis and surface modification for oil/water separations, ultrafiltration of seawater, VOC capture, but also gas separation and pervaporation. In addition to his intensive work on MFI zeolite membranes (up-scalable on commercial ceramic capillaries in collaboration with CEPAration-The Netherlands) he investigated a variety of other membrane materials for gas separation, including other molecular sieves such as amorphous silicon carbide or MOFs, but also mixed-matrix and composite polymer-ceramic membranes. In May 2015, his scientific production included a co-authorship of 26 scientific papers and proceedings, 2 book chapters, 1 patent and presentation of over 20 oral communications at national and international congresses.
