What we do

Direct conversion (and storage) of energy into chemical bonds constitutes one of the most attractive solutions to the worlds challenging energy demands. For instance, one can envision the production of alternative chemical fuels such as Hydrogen (by water splitting) and Carbohydrate feedstock molecules (by CO2 reduction), through the transformation of either solar energy (Photocatalysis), electrochemical energy (Electrocatalysis) or both (Photo-Electrocatalysis).

Our group develops functional highly porous hybrid organic-inorganic materials, and studies their utilization in new approaches for energy conversion schemes.
