Heterogeneous Catalysis and Sustainable Energy
The main focus of our research group is the design and development of functional nanostructured materials for sustainable energy related catalytic applications. Our motivation is to advance understanding of structure-activity relationships in the field of heterogeneous catalysis and materials science. One of our key strategies is the precise control of structure, morphology, topology and composition of materials at a nanoscale through top–down and bottom-up approaches, particularly using soft and hard templating methods. Fundamental target reactions include water splitting and catalytic conversion of CO and CO2. We are also interested in the design of nanostructured halide perovskites and investigation of their novel catalytic properties and potentials.
