Christophe Dujardin completed an M.S. degree in material sciences from the University of Caen, France, in 1998 and received his Ph.D. degree in theoretic physical and analytical chemistry from the same university in 2002. His work was performed in the Laboratory of Catalysis and Spectrochemistry, Caen, France, and focused on the characterization of hydro treating catalysts through model reactions and infrared spectroscopy. He more specifically contributed to the understanding of the working catalyst on real feed. From 2001 to 2002, he moved to a Total R&D centre in Feluy, Belgium, as a Temporary Researcher for one year. He subsequently joined the Université Lille 1, Villeneuve d'Ascq, France, as Assistant Professor. His research is performed at the Unity of Catalysis and Solid State Chemistry (UCCS – UMR CNRS 8181) in the group of Professor Pascal Granger. His current research activities are mainly devoted to the removal of nitrogen oxides from stationary or mobile sources using heterogeneous catalysts. Spectroscopic techniques (IR, Raman, and XPS) are employed for the study of reactions and for the identification of adsorbed species. Operand conditions are very useful to understand catalytic processes in correlation to spectroscopic results and on-line analysis of product reaction.
