Jean-Luc Blin was born in 1971. He got his Ph.D. degree in 1997 at the Laboratoire de Spectroscopie Infrarouge et Raman of the University of Lille 1 France. After one year of military obligations as a scientist, he became an Assistant Professor at the Laboratory of Inorganic Materials in Namur University (Belgium) from January 12 to August 2002. At the same time, he has started his studies on porous materials. In September 2002, he has moved from Namur to Nancy (France). He was an Assistant Professor in physical chemistry in the group Physicochimie des Colloïdes. Quickly, he was implied in the life of the university, and he was elected at the scientific council from 2004 to 2006. At this date, he became a professor. His research concerns one of the most important domains dealing with the preparation of inorganic and/or hybrid materials. Moreover, he investigates different aspects: the physic-chemistry of interface and of supramolecular assembly which are the stared point not only for the better understanding of the formation mechanism of the new ordered solids but also for the design of new materials having the peculiar features. These compounds have attracted much attention due to their important potential applications in various domains (catalysis, optics and electronic, separative science, biology, and bioencapsulation). The overall of his work has led to 1 patent and 73 publications.
