ARTIFICIAL PHOTOSYNTHESIS for ENERGY PRODUCTION - MANGANESE RUTHENIUM CHEMISTRY BASED on PRINCIPLES FROM THE NATURAL PHOTOSYNTHESIS

Objective



The broad competence provides a rich environment for graduate students and photosynthetic energy conversion. In these super complexes, ruthenium is post docs. In the network exchange, our young researchers will learn from many different fields. In the process, our assembled competence will be the photoelectron donor. A new concept is to regenerate, as in natures broadened and deepened with the next generation of researchers. For Photo system II, this donor by electron abstraction from water using a example; Post docs with basic education in synthesis and organometallics manganese complex. The ultimate goal is to couple an antennae, a Ru reaction centre and a Mn complex in a super complex able to oxidise water. will learn photochemistry, fast optical spectroscopy, membrane chemistry and natural photosynthesis. This will generate bridges between fields that The new complexes will be characterised with advanced-EPR and ultra fast are normally isolated. The exchange of post docs also involves less optical spectroscopy. The initial results will be of basic character but favoured regions (Sicily, Napoli, Halle (Germany), Ireland). we aim at production of fuel e.g. hydrogen from water. The network contains groups specialised in organo-metallic synthesis, natural photosynthesis, spectroscopy and membrane chemistry.
