LeBlanc Research Group


Roger M. Leblanc

Our research group is mainly working on the development of novel nanomaterials such as carbon dots. After synthesis, purification and characterization by various spectroscopies and microscopies, we are especially interested in the application of carbon dots in drug delivery to treat Alzheimer’s disease, bone mineralization process and many types of cancer. Except for drug delivery, our research group is also investigating the application of 2D or 3D printing, biosensing, photocatalysis and cosmetics using carbon dots. Another focus of our research group is the study of surface chemistry of organic and biological supramolecular complexes using Langmuir monolayer technique.


Specifically we are focusing on:

  • Carbon Dots
  • Drug Delivery
  • Oncology
  • Crossing the blood-brain barrier
  • Biosensor
  • Langmuir monolayer
