Oxygen- and hydrogen evolution triggered by surface-supported catalysts
Sprache der Bezeichnung:
During this research, we focus on significant efforts to develop solid state materials and molecular coordination complexes as catalyst for water oxidation. We will develop molecular catalysts and examine the activity of molecular catalysts in water oxidation following their attachment to conducting electrodes. For such molecular species to be useful in a solar water-splitting device it is preferable that they are securely and durably affixed to an electrode surface. We also consider the combination of the action of molecular catalysts with light absorption so that light driven water oxidation may be achieved.
