  • Patent number: 9393591
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for depositing nanoparticles (NPs) on a nanostructured metal oxide (NSMO) substrate, characterized in that it comprises the steps of: a) functionalizing the NSMO substrate with a bifunctional coupling agent carrying a first function, this first function being a phosphonic function that forms a bond with the NSMO, and a second function that is intended to form a bond with a nanoparticle; and b) grafting the nanoparticles via a bond with the second function of the coupling agent. The invention also relates to a stack comprising a nanostructured metal oxide substrate covered with nanoparticles by way of a bifunctional coupling agent carrying a first function, this first function being a phosphonic function and forming a bond with the NSMO, and a second function that is intended to form a bond with a nanoparticle. The invention is applicable to the field of microelectronics and especially to the production of electrodes and the production of photovoltaic panels.

  • Patent number: 8440258
    Abstract: The invention relates to a process for the non-covalent coating of a support by a hybrid organic/inorganic film, characterized in that it comprises the steps of: —depositing a conjugated organic polymer comprising organic groups of X type onto the support; depositing nanoparticles comprising one or more organic groups of Y type onto the support, and in that the groups of X and Y types are capable of developing hydrogen-type bonds between themselves. Typically, the deposition steps are repeated, generally alternately, until the desired thickness for the film is obtained. The deposition may be carried out on the whole of the support or on one part of the latter only.
