Halide Perovskites as New Class of Catalyst

Halide perovskites have fascinating physicochemical and optoelectronic properties and thus have been in the spotlight of photovoltaics research for the last decade. This class of materials has started to gain attention in the heterogeneous catalysis community as well. Some of our research efforts are devoted to the design and development of novel nanostructured halide perovskites and investigation of their innovative catalytic properties for thermal and solar-driven model catalytic reactions
