M.P Pileni is emeritus distinguished Professor. She has published more 450 articles with H index of 78 and an average citation per item of 54.55. Her expertise domain deduced from published papers (ISI): 29.6% in Chemistry; 18.3% in Physics; 17% in Material Sciences; 12.4% in Science Technology and 22.7% in other domains (spectroscopy, crystallography, biochemistry, biophysics and others)
Her major contributions in nanotechnology are:(i) Understanding the fundamentals of the kinetics and mechanisms in colloidal solutions, which led to the creation of inorganic nanocrystals differing by size, distribution, crystalline structure, shape (ii) Building up thermodynamically stable states inorganic nanocrystals self-assemblies, (supracrystals). (iii) Finding collective optical and magnetic properties induced by dipolar interactions and due to the nanocrystal arrangements in 1D, 2D and 3D superlattices. (iv) Discovering chemical and physical intrinsic properties due to the crystalline structure of isolated nanocrystals. (v) Discovering different physical (vibrational, magnetic, optical) properties of nanocrystal assemblies depending on the crystalline atomic structure of nanoparticles. (vi) Developing conceptual analogies between supracrystals and atomic crystalline structures. (vii) Solubilization of hydrophobic supracrystals in aqueous solution for biomedical (imaging and hyperthermia) and solar energy applications
Over her career, she received several prestigious awards and she is member of large number of Scientific Academy. She is Commander of the “Ordre National de la Légion d'Honneur"
