Single-Site Electrocatalytic Flow Reactor for C-C Coupling

Project description

Single atoms as catalysts key to sustainable reactions

Electrification of the chemical industry offers opportunities to reduce the environmental footprint of this sector. In this way, stoichiometric amounts of toxic chemical oxidants/reductants can be avoided, allowing chemical manufacturing to be powered directly by solar and wind farms, rather than thermal power plants. To achieve this objective, novel, efficient and selective electrocatalysts are key. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the SSEFR project will design novel, single-atom electrocatalysts that contain earth-abundant components for carbon-carbon coupling reactions under continuous-flow conditions. This will merge catalyst design with sustainable electrosynthesis, and pave the way for a greener manufacturing of chemicals and pharmaceuticals.
