Catalytic cascade reactions. From fundamentals of nanozymes to applications based on gas-diffusion electrodes

Project description

Functional catalysts based on nanomaterials with enzyme-like properties

The EU-funded CASCAT project plans to use nanoparticles with etched substrate channels as simplified enzyme mimics – nanozymes – in electrocatalysis. This concept will be extended to bimetallic core-shell structures with etched channels to provide locally confined catalyst surfaces with varying selectivity. The attempt to locally assemble catalysts with different properties in nano-confined reaction volumes will be extended to layered nanoparticle structures. The project will also develop and evaluate multi-catalyst gas-diffusion electrodes using operando spectroscopy and nano-electrochemical tools. The new gas-diffusion electrodes will be integrated into novel tree-type rotating electrolysers for removing hazardous gaseous pollutants from the air.
