Curriculum Vitae

PhD in polymer chemistry by the University of Liege (Belgium) in 1998. Then he carried out a post-doctoral stay at IBM Almaden Research Center and Stanford University in California. Back to Spain he worked for 10 years in CIDETEC.

In 2011 he became Ikerbasque Research Pofessor at POLYMAT (www.polymat.eu), University of the Basque Country. Since then he has been the leader of the Innovative polymer group. In 2011 he was awarded with a ERC consolidator grant named iPES “Innovative Polymers for Electrochemical Energy Storage”.  His research interest include the synthesis of innovative polymers for energy and bioelectronics. In particular his team is developing new redox polymers, poly(ionic liquid)s, iongels and  ion conducting polymer electrolytes. He is co-author of more than 265 scientific articles.

Polymers play an important role in the development of future battery technologies. Nowadays, new ion conducting polymers or polymer electrolytes, electrically conductive polymers and redox polymers are highly investigated in several battery technologies such as metal-air, redox-flow, printable batteries, sodium, magnesium or different battery chemistries.1 Polymers can be used in different parts of the battery such as redox active cathodic material, polymer electrolyte or polymeric binders.

In this lecture we will discuss our recent activities in the development of innovative polymers for Electrochemical Energy Storage. In particular, we will present the main synthetic and characterization methods as well as applications of Redox Polymers.  Our recent activities related to the development of new redox active sulfur copolymers for lithium-sulfur batteries will be discussed. The talk will include the inverse vulcanization of sulfur using natural dienes, the synthesis of sulfur rich poly(anthraquinonyl sulfides) and the combination of sulfur polymers and poly(ionic liquid)s.
