Visible-light-driven Photocatalytic CO2 Reduction to Solar fuels by multinary N-Graphene based Heterostructure Composites

Project description

Optimising composites to lower atmospheric CO2 levels while fulfilling energy demand

Photocatalytic CO2 reduction to obtain sustainable solar fuels is a challenge for tackling both energy and environmental issues. Many photocatalysts, including inorganic semiconductors and 2D nanomaterials, are potential candidates for photoreduction of CO2, but still far from practical application due to several drawbacks. To address the demand for high-performance photocatalysts, the PhotoCatRed project will develop multinary N-doped graphene-based heterostructure composites to serve as strong, highly efficient photocatalysts for visible light reduction of CO2. The heterostructure composites will be specially designed to deal with today’s key challenges. They could be very useful photocatalysts in reducing CO2 under irradiation of visible light.
