We propose a new process based on bipolar electrochemistry. We can modify any conductive nano-object, to a assymetric and bifonctionnal nano-object.

Breaking symmetry in physical, chemical and biological systems is very useful:

  • Electronic Paper display (specially electronic ink),
  • Nanoelectronics, 
  • Chemical catalysis,
  • Stabilization of emulsions,
  • Medicine,
  • Photovoltaics.

Beyond the immediate applications Janus particles are generally of great interest to the scientific community, as evidenced by recent work on fundamental phenomena such as directed self-assembly, electron transport in nano-objects or behavior optical quantum dots. Propose a simple method for making custom objects can provide asymmetric initially to the scientific community objects of study, which will have the effect the discovery of new phenomena and potential applications.
